Bethlehem Promise Neighborhood to hold first Southside Resident Block Party this Saturday 7/30 at Yosko Park



BETHLEHEM, PA – July 26, 2016 – Bethlehem Promise Neighborhood will host its first Resident Block Party to bring Southside neighborhood residents together while connecting them with local public service agencies this Saturday, July 30 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Yosko Park located at the corner of Atlantic Street and E. 6th Street.

The free event for BPN Southside neighborhood residents will feature partner information tables from local non-profit groups, food and beverages, music, games and activities for children, and other entertainment. It will be held rain or shine.

Attendees who get their passport stamped at each partner information table will be entered in a drawing for FREE raffle prizes.

The event partner is Habitat for Humanity of the Lehigh Valley.

Regional nonprofit organization Promise Neighborhoods of the Lehigh Valley announced in May that it would locate its Bethlehem Promise Neighborhood within two areas of the Christmas City – Census tract 112 on the Southside and also the Northeast’s Pembroke Village/Marvine area.

Initiated by the United Way and developed by community leaders, PNLV was envisioned and planned as a regional organization to address challenges facing families and children in select neighborhoods across the Lehigh Valley. PNLV’s first neighborhood is in the Old Allentown Historic District downtown. The success of Allentown Promise Neighborhood lead the organization to expand its model to the valley’s other cities, launching the Easton Promise Neighborhood in the city’s West Ward last year.

The non-profit Promise Neighborhoods of the Lehigh Valley unites residents and leaders from various sectors to ensure the success of children from birth through career. Its office is located at 1101 Hamilton Street, Suite 102 in Allentown. For more information, visit
