c-leveled, 4117 Liberty Ave, Pittsburgh, Pa (NOTE – the google address is wrong – use this address – c-leveled is in the Drake Building which is across from the Bloomfield Bridge)
Can’t make it tomorrow? Please join the Pittsburgh Women Bloggers MeetUp group here.
One of the BEST parts of writing this blog is the amazing community of Pittsburghers that have stepped up to support so many great causes. The CHS Holiday Gift Project is one of many incredible holiday fundraisers happening around town.
IheartPGH Readers Make a Difference
Last year, the readers of IheartPGH raised over $2500 to help Pittsburgh non-profits.
- $1395 for Light of Light Minisitries to provide underwear for the homeless shelter
- $1360 online and more at the event for CHS (Community Human Services) Holiday Fundraiser
This year, the readers of IheartPGH contributed time, money (over $5000), tweets, Facebook posts and great ideas to make it possible for me to participate in the Millennial Trains Project. I am personally incredibly grateful for the amazing generosity of Pittsburghers.
The CHS Holiday Gift Project and The (ChristMas Cookie Table)
Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it is full-steam ahead into the holiday season. I hope you will join me in supporting CHS again this holiday season. The monies raised from this annual event allow CHS to provide small holiday gifts and activities for the Pittsburghers that they serve. Last year – we exceed the fundraising goal and CHS was able to provide gift for over 400 people. Continue reading
