How have you invested in your communities? Let me know in the comments!
Thanks again to Canaan Blackwell for being Pittsburgh's hardest work young entrepreneur. And thanks to all who make the community of Allentown a great place to be: Black Forge Coffee House, Hilltop Alliance, Work Hard Pittsburgh, BOOM Concepts, Shadow Student Athletes, Von Madden, Spool, Epicast TV, Breakfast at Shelly's, Fame15 Creative, Drip Lounge, and probably others I'm forgetting. You guys, along with the amazing residents of Allentown, make me proud to work, shop, and eat here everyday.
