I wanted to post a reminder about supporting Community Human Services Holiday Gift Project. The response to my post earlier this week has been amazing. This is a great way to highlight some local business owners that have donated items for the raffle as well.

With the holiday season upon us – I’m hoping you will read this and consider lending your support to another Pittsburgh organization that is working very hard to bring some holiday cheer.… Read the rest
