PSCA encourages you and your neighbors to get together this summer for a good old-fashioned block party! As PSCA’s mission is all about “neighbors helping neighbors,” block parties are a great way to meet and build relationships with your neighbors over food, music and fun!

During the party, a few PSCA representatives will stop by to meet you and your neighbors and to share information about PSCA and how to get involved.
