By - Oct 4th, 2016 02:18 pm

MILWAUKEE, OCTOBER 4, 2016: An unprecedented collaboration of nearly a dozen groups invites participation of neighbors in Sherman Park, especially the ”Tri-Block” area from North 51st to North 60th Streets and Center to Burleigh Streets, to join together on Sunday, October 23rd, to prepare streets and alleys for fall and winter weather. The day will culminate with a free community celebration and resource fair for neighbors and their families.

Fueled by the belief that our community is stronger when we know and are connected to each other, those interested in participating in the clean-up up (11:00am-1:00pm) or providing a resource table or other service to the community celebration (1:00pm-3:00pm) should contact Meagan Holman at the Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee. Activities will be based out of Mount Calvary Lutheran Church, 2862 N 53rd St, Milwaukee, WI 53210.

This partnership of the Sherman Park Community Association, Tri-Block Neighborhood Organization, Safe & Sound, Common Ground, Sherman Park Action Network, Sherman Park Association of Religious Communities, Sherman Park/Northwest Interfaith Program for Older Adults, Center Street Marketplace Business Improvement District, and Burleigh Street Business Improvement District, is funded in part by the Nonprofit Management Fund and organized by community leaders and the Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee.
