Air Filter Working Group

This working group will meet in person at Community Economic Development Corporation Clairton (CEDCC) building @ 1:00 pm tomorrow. CEDCC is at 282 St. Clair Avenue, Clairton, PA 15025.

Their objective is to purchase indoor air filters and to distribute them at no cost to households in the Five Boroughs of Clairton, Glassport, Port Vue, Lincoln and Liberty. They welcome help from residents of all the Five Boroughs to accomplish this goal.
