ReClaim McKeesport ambassadors transform vacant lot

With a Habitat for Humanity construction project on hold, ambassadors in the ReClaim McKeesport initiative are making the most of a Lemon Street lot.

GTECH Strategies advisers, who are in McKeesport to take on their first beautification project outside of Pittsburgh this year, guided a handful of McKeesport’s newly selected ambassadors through their first project Saturday.

“This was a demonstration project to show our new community leaders some of the projects they can do next spring,” GTECH Strategies project manager James Snow said. “We’re getting the cohort together and getting their hands dirty.”
