We are a nonprofit (501c3) that focuses on community development by promoting civic and social literacy to instill self-reliance while addressing the immediate needs of the economically underconnected in Wilkinsburg and the East End region. Civically engaged communities are sustainable communities.
Free Store Wilkinsburg redistributes new and lightly used goods at no cost to East End community members, especially in times of financial stress and/or emergency. FSW relies on donations by corporate partners, community members, and volunteers.
Wilkinsburg Fresh Market was founded through a partnership with Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, 412 Food Rescue, and Farmers to Families Program to provide free fresh produce distribution in Wilkinsburg. Weekly, we provide fresh produce from local farmers at no cost to community members. Through this market, we also encourage healthy meal preparations and education on nutrition.
Civically has partnered with Grounded, an organization dedicated to improving the overall health of communities by building capacity to reclaim vacant and underutilized land, to bring CommunityCare to Wilkinsburg!
CommunityCare is an incentive-based stewardship program that works with residents to beautify their neighborhoods. We provide the tools, resources, and support for stewards to participate in greenspace maintenance work.
