Are you ready to celebrate the official end of winter and look towards the
warmer weather of the summer? We are too! Come join The Mission Continues of
Pittsburgh (Hazelwood Platoon), and our partner Hazelwood Initiative, as we do
some spring cleaning in preparation for the Hazelwood Summer Marketplace.
The Hazelwood Summer Marketplace provides a low-risk opportunity for
small and local businesses to set up shop. Hazelwood Initiative has been running
this outdoor business incubator for over 5 years because storefronts are limited in
Hazelwood. The Marketplace allows local businesses to practice their business
model and gain a following.

In recent years, the marketplace continues to be rented out, but has received
less attention than before. However, beginning this summer, Hazelwood Initiative
wants it to be more of a hub of activity. This would benefit the vendors with more
customers, as well as the community with more activities. Hazelwood Initiative has
decided to reactivate the site, giving a lot of time and attention to it once again. This
summer, the site will be host to vendors, fairs, concerts, etc. and needs to be
brightened up.

To activate the site, Hazelwood Initiative is hosting a Summer Marketplace
Clean-Up. The clean-up will mainly consist of painting the stands, a stage, and some
storage sheds in a fresh and bright coat of paint. Some miscellaneous trash and
overgrowth maintenance might also be in order.

Hazelwood Initiative will be providing lunch for all registered participants.
This event is open to all ages and abilities.

What To Wear :

Your blue TMC shirt. Don't have one? We will have some on site for new volunteers! This is an outdoor event, in Pittsburgh, in March. Be prepared for whatever Mother
Nature decides to throw at us!

What To Bring :

Work gloves if you have them! A great attitude and the desire to make a difference!

Parking :

There will be in the S&R Market parking lot at 4915 Second Ave. This is catty-corner from the Summer Marketplace and owned by Hazelwood Initiative. There is also free street parking throughout the area.

Inclement Weather Plan :

Rain or shine. If we need to cancel for extreme weather, we will post on social media and send out emails to registered participants.
