In The News!

By Sloane Davidson,  November 25, 2018

We had a great Pittsburgh trifecta of news in the last week check it out!

“When neighbors support one another, this builds unity within our communities. I urge anyone who is outraged about the pockets of hatred gaining hold in our country to combat these sentiments with acts of love. Welcome the new neighbors in your community. Say hello. Show them that America is better than this.”

Whether it’s participating in a match program to socialize with immigrant families or lending a helping hand at a soup kitchen, Pittsburghers are volunteering at a nationally recognized rate. Nearly 38 percent of local residents volunteer, placing the city in seventh place nationally for its collective rate of volunteerism.

We hear the fear-mongers, too. They are wrong. They are merely recycling old tactics that were used when our families came here. Our families, like these new families, started at the bottom and worked their way up. They fought in the wars and some died for their new country and the opportunities it provided. They worked hard in the factories and offices, became good neighbors and raised good families. They became Americans, and that is still the promise of Thanksgiving.
