A planning team made up volunteers and professionals from the Jewish neighborhood of Squirrel Hill, the African-American neighborhood of Homewood, and the city government meets regularly to plan twice-a-year litter pickup events. Out of respect for the religious traditions of both communities, the Homewood event takes place on Saturdays and the Squirrel Hill event on Sundays. On Sunday afternoon, volunteers from both neighborhoods gather in a park for a joint picnic. We're called the Homewood-Squirrel Hill Redd Up Coalition. The term "Redd Up" is Pittsburghese and was popularized by a beloved former mayor.
