Dear Oakland Supporter,

Saturday, August 29, 2015 is South Oakland Community Day (SOCD) at Dan Marino Field on Frazier St from Noon-7pm. The South Oakland Neighborhood Group (SONG) is a volunteer community group representing the residents of Pittsburgh’s South Oakland Neighborhood. South Oakland Community Day is a fun-filled event that has attracted nearly 500 participants in the past with food & music, raffles & giveaways, sports, games and activities for all ages.

The South Oakland community volunteers enrich the lives of the people and the neighborhood in which they reside through various activities including clean-ups of city streets and collaborate with local politicians, institutions and other stakeholders to maintain and correct fulfill some of the neighborhood needs. They work to protect the greenways and green spaces and provide student groups with environmental education through hands-on stewardship and ecological training. Volunteers also work with the neighborhood youth through after-school and lunch programs. We would like to make this event a great close to the summer to showcase these efforts and our community.

South Oakland Community Day is also the ideal time for neighbors to reach out to the many new university students that will soon call South Oakland home, from Point Park University, Carnegie Mellon University, Carlow University and the University of Pittsburgh and welcome them into our community. With this in mind, we would like to keep the tradition of making this event mostly inexpensive or free.

As a valued member of our community we would like to ask for your support to make this the best event possible. You can help us by becoming by donating gifts we can use for raffles, food, money or volunteering to help.  Donations help us pay for food, supplies and programming. Our donation request form can be found on the reverse of this letter. As our fiscal agent, Oakland Planning and Development Corporation will provide a copy of their tax-exempt certificate as needed.

Thank you for considering this local community event. Every little bit helps!

Sincerely,

 Mark Oleniacz
Chairperson, South Oakland Community Day Planning Committee
Vice-Chairperson, South Oakland Neighborhood Group
