On Saturday, December 17th, my daughter and I volunteered at South Hill Assembly Church to pack gift bags for 24 Angel Tree families filled with homemade cookies (which we also baked and donated), toiletries, Bibles, holiday music CDs and other various gifts.

On Saturday, May 21st, I started my 50th birthday by volunteering at the 2016 Venture Outdoors Festival assisting with vendor check-in and unloading vehicles. Despite the rain all morning, I had a blast driving the golf carts around Point State Park and meeting new people! Venture Outdoors is a non-profit organization offering over 500 public programs a year including hiking, biking, kayaking, rock climbing, geocaching, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing.
Today I helped the Western Pennsylvania Girl Scouts distribute 5000 cases of Girl Scout cookies to 31 troops and 312 Girl Scouts.
Allegheny County is a great place to live, work and raise a family. We are very fortunate to have a network of health and human services that help all of us, directly or indirectly, by maintaining a strong community safety net. That’s why the Pittsburgh Office of Clark Hill was proud to conduct our annual United Way Campaign. The annual campaign is a way to do our part to improve everyone’s quality of life by helping our neighbors in need. The Pittsburgh Office 2015 Campaign raised a total of $64,505, a 45% increase over last year’s campaign.

For the 24th consecutive year, the Pittsburgh office of Clark Hill continued its tradition of generosity by providing holiday gifts for area children in need. Again this year we participated in Treasures for Children, a program sponsored by the Salvation Army. Our office “adopted” 70 girls and boys from the Pittsburgh area.

On Wednesday, November 11, I spent the morning volunteering at the Scholastic Bood Fair at my daughter’s school. I helped kindergarten through third-graders select and purchase the books of their choice. These book fairs are a tremendous resource. The students are able to obtain affordable reading materials, learn about spending money, and purchases earn additional books for the school.
On November 3rd, I volunteered with LifeSteps, an organization that teaches life skills to those with special needs. I volunteered along with five students from LifeSteps at a pancake fundraiser at a local Rotary Club during the election.
