When our runners take to the starting line of the Dick’s Sporting Good Pittsburgh Marathon on May 5, 2013, they won’t be running just to better their times. They’ll be running to better the lives of the more than 6,000 families who visit North Hills Community Outreach for help each year. Our runners will experience blisters, shin splints, cramps and lost toenails. But they know those are temporary setbacks compared to job loss, illness, hunger and poverty experienced by our neighbors in crisis.
During the past two years combined, our runners have raised $13,500 to help families regain self-sufficiency and improve their quality of life.
In 2013, our goal is to have 30 runners run for NHCO and raise $15,000 – and to cross the finish line wearing smiles! Please help support our runners and our mission to ensure that no one is cold, hungry or alone. You can make a donation in support of a particular runner or the whole NHCO team.
Your contribution means so much to a struggling family. Here are some ways your donations will help:
- $300 keeps a family from being evicted from their apartment
- $200 pays an elderly couple’s gas bill, ensuring they will not be cold during the winter
- $100 buys a week’s worth of groceries for a single mother and her two children
- $50 fills the gas tank of a man working to support his family
- $25 pays for home repairs to keep a senior citizen safe
- $15 buys a backpack and supplies for a child starting school
North Hills Community Outreach serves families in need in 50 communities in Northern Allegheny County. Putting our hearts, hands --and feet!--together, we can ensure that no one will be cold or hungry or feel alone.
Thank you all for your support!
