Know Someone Standing Up- Standing Out When It Counts?

April 7, 2020

Times are harder than ever.  We are right there with you.  But there is joy to be found right here in Pittsburgh.  Hidden heroes.   We see it on the news, we hear it from our friends, we watch teachers give, we witness our companies step up, we see it in the smiles of our children putting bears in the window.    So many stories of inspiration and goodness out there that help to stop the feeling of being overwhelmed. We want to do our part to highlight all Pittsburgh heroes big and small.  Someone standing up, standing out when it counts?   Someone 'Burgh Proud! 

But we need your help.
