BENEFIT FROM A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE HARDWARE STORE

The Hardware Store is an inclusive and engaged community of freelance professionals. We work hard to provide affordable technology services and coworking to the region. We are also working hard to be a small part of the revitalization of the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Allentown. Several high profile projects are in the works, and they could use your support.

INFORMATION EQUALITY

The management and freelance community of the Hardware Store believe strongly that access to information is the great economic equalizer. Distressed neighborhoods like Allentown often suffer from lack of Internet access. We will be rolling out free wireless internet to the business district using technology developed by the heroes at Metamesh.

WATER THE FOOD DESERT

Allentown doesn’t have many nutritious food options. It’s a crisis that affects economically distressed neighborhoods all over the country. We are looking for the right partners to help bring education and quality produce to our neighbors.
