The People's Park Mitten Fence is back for its fifth year! The Mitten Fence is a program to help supply our community with hats, gloves, scarves, and warm clothing during the cold winter months.

Donations of bagged new and gently used winter clothing and accessories can be hung on the fence for those in need. Stop by 2435 Main Street in Buffalo to donate any items to the fence or to pick up any hats, gloves, or scarves if you or someone you know is in need this winter.

Our Honors students rolled up their sleeves this weekend to help spruce up People's Park . The pocket park on Main St. and Jewett Ave. is a place for neighbors to garden, gather and grow. Now it's all ready for them to enjoy Buffalo's beautiful fall weather! 🍂
Last week Aspire's Co-Op, along with other Aspire iXpress Art Studios, created an outdoor exhibit at People's Park at the Tri-Main Center! This one-of-a-kind show highlighted the unique and personalized art of Aspires iXpress artists. There were over 30 Bird and Fairy houses that were designed by the iXpress artists for the public to enjoy!
Make sure to stop by People's Park this week and check out the unique bird and fairy houses created by our friends at Aspire of WNY . The exhibition will be up from August 29 - September 2, with a reception from 12 - 1:30 pm on September 1! Swipe to see more information.
We have had so much fun this summer working with the The Salvation Army of Buffalo, NY's summer camp at People's Park! Thank you to our amazing instructors for providing the campers with engaging arts & science projects!
Congratulations to People's Park - the beautiful pocket park near Tri-Main Center!

I am looking for Timothy Moore date of birth 2-24-1967! I think he may have grown up near Delaware Park. Please share this on whatever page you can!

Hey ScarbStudies!

As part of plazaPOPS (the pop up gathering space being installed in Wexford Plaza this summer) we are conducting a Public Life Study to measure the economic/social impact of our project so we can report results with replicability in mind.

We are looking for volunteers the week of June 17 to help us with the Public Life Study before the project is installed!

All volunteer shifts will be in pairs, and you will receive all the materials/training needed to accomplish your shift.

If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up for a shift here:
https://signup.com/go/Jtyohrh

For more info on Public Life Studies, check out this blog post from People's Park - https://parkpeople.ca/archives/10207

If you have any questions, please email me at [email protected]

Thanks!
As we celebrate the last day of National Community Action Month, we'd like to thank everyone who came out to support our first CAO in the Community Day! We had an amazing time and the weather couldn't have been better! Special thanks to the wonderful folks at People's Park, the Buffalo Police Department for providing community police officers, our sponsors DFT Security and Eagle Systems Office Technologies, our staff and volunteers and all of our friends from Aloma D. Johnson Charter School, PS 54 Dr. George E. Blackman School of Excellence, Buffalo Collegiate and Tri-Main Center for spending the day with us!
