For the past few years, I have been part of a group of Pittsburgh bloggers who have helped the Pittsburgh nonprofit Community Human Services aka CHS raise money for their holiday gift project. One of the things that I have learned about CHS is that they provide many important services to Pittsburghers who don’t fit into other social service programs. The same holds true for the holiday gifts.
