Toys for Alle-Kiski Kids
We will be collecting new, unwrapped toys at the Municipal building to benefit "Toys for Alle-Kiski Kids", which help the less fortunate children in our local area. A box will be located in the main entrance of the Township building from now until December 11th.
Help to make Christmas a little merrier. Thank you for your donations.
(This organization does not charge any admin fees, or pay any employees. Every toy and every dollar goes directly to the toys for the kids and every toy donated is dispersed the year it is donated.)

He is expected to leave the fire hall between 4 and 4:30 pm heading north to the Paulton area, then back south, ending at Wellington Estates.
(No treats will be handed out this year due to the virus)

Washington Township/Bell Township Lion's Club
If interested in helping your local community, join the Lion's Club. Monthly meetings are held at the Township building every 1st and 3rd Monday of every month at 7:00 pm. For more information, contact John Doyle at 724-727-2518. Lions brooms are available at the Municipal building.
The Township Public Works Department will be tree and shrub trimming. Tree limbs or shrubs, which hang into the right-of-way or are in the area beyond the edges of the road and are less than 14 feet in height, become a hazard and cause damage to buses and trucks, and also interferes with proper snow removal. The Public Works Department would greatly appreciate if all residents would trim their trees in this area. They will also be trimming trees/shrubs that restrict vision at intersections. The workers will try and hand out letters to give advance notice if they will be in your area. They cannot be held responsible if there is any damage to your trees. If you are concerned with the health of your trees, please either trim them yourselves or hire a qualified tree arborist.
Please be aware that our township ordinance prohibits parking on streets. This is especially important during the winter months when our plows need to have access. This will be enforced.
Please contact Rick Huffman, our Public Works Director at the Township maintenance bldg. at 724-727-9669 if you need further information or if you have any other road-related concerns. Information you may have is always appreciated.
