The East Walnut Hills community has been adjusting to the “new normal” due to Coronavirus restrictions, but there’s still plenty to do in our neighborhood! Please read on for ways to get involved.
The Beautification Committee needs volunteers to work in our neighborhood green spaces. You can make your own hours, no experience is necessary, and all work can be done while safely social distancing. Get in touch here to volunteer.
The Events Committee organizes monthly trash cleanups, but please help keep our neighborhood clean whenever you stroll our streets! Picking up litter is an easy way to get some exercise, too.
Speaking of walking, go Vibrant has created the largest network of walking routes in the US right here in Cincinnati, including four in East Walnut Hills! Choose a 1, 2, 3 or 5 mile route and explore our neighborhood!
go Vibrant‘s Million Step Challenge is a competition among Cincinnati neighborhoods to see which can log the most steps in 2020. The top prize is a donation to be used for a health and wellness initiative in a neighborhood park. Click here [PDF] for the printable Step Tracker.
The city’s annual Neighborhood Blitz has been postponed, but you can submit service requests for concerns like potholes, tall grass and missed trash pick-up. Download the Fix It Cincy! mobile app or call 513-591-6000.
Mercy Neighborhood Ministries seeks cash donations and sanitizer, masks and gloves to help continue its important community work, and donations of food and personal care items for its choice pantry. More details here [PDF].
Our neighborhood is home to two independent radio stations, and you don’t need a radio to listen! Click here for WAIF 88.3 FM and here for MRC Radio 95.7 FM. Both stations play music of all genres. Want to host your own radio program? WAIF 88.3 FM is currently accepting proposals.
Please continue to support our neighborhood businesses in whatever ways you can — online shopping, carryout, purchasing gift certificates, or writing positive online reviews. Businesses are open as appropriate, in adherence to state guidelines.
