Volunteer Opportunities @ The Union Project

The Union Project is hosting two clean-up days on May 10 and May 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Join volunteers from around the neighborhood and around the city to help clean up the Union Project. Volunteers will help to remove debris from the building and do general landscaping work including mulching brush and planting flowers. Interested volunteers should come with a brown bag lunch and dressed in work clothes.

We invite you – along with all of our neighbors – to join us in these efforts to build community and beautify our neighborhoods. We also welcome your efforts to pick up trash on your own block and bring your yard waste to be mulched or your picked-up trash to dispose of in our dumpster. At the very least, we invite you to stop by to visit with us, meet some new friends and learn more about the Union Project!

Arts Activities

Are you interested in being a part of the Union Project’s weekly Local Art-Making and Farmer’s Market? 


We’re looking for creative and energetic people like you to participate in any of three ways:

          -selling your own art or other products

          -providing experiential art-making activities to passersby

          -providing information about your own community organization or project 


The Local-Art Making and Farmer’s Market will be held every Thursday evening pending zoning approval from June 26th to September 25th 2003 on the front lawn of the former Union Baptist Church at the intersection of Stanton and Negley Avenues—the highly traversed border connecting East Liberty and Highland Park neighborhoods. 


The market will feature three main areas for participation;

(1)  Stalls designated for vendors to sell their wares.

(2)  Stalls designated for local community organizations and local businesses.

(3)  A Union Project stall that will have information about the organization, art-making activities for public participation, and ways for people to help out with the Union Project effort. 


Please come to an information meeting being held outside at the Union Project, 801 N. Negley Ave, on May 15th from 7-8PM to learn how to become involved either in a one-time or ongoing capacity.
