What Can I Do To Help
To help aid individuals in our most vulnerable communities, Leroy Ball, President & CEO, Koppers, is inviting his team and other Pittsburgh corporations, organizations and concerned individuals to partner with the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh to launch a fund drive to purchase and distribute essential goods such as disinfectants, paper towels, toilet paper and hand sanitizer to some of the region's most economically distressed communities, such as the the Hill District, Homewood, Duquesne, Homestead, the Mon Valley and the Northside.
Many residents in these local communities need our support. Every donation makes a difference. We are all in this together. We are All One Pittsburgh
Ranked in three successive performance reviews as one of the nation’s highest performing affiliates, the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh focuses on serving African-Americans and other minorities, but no one is ever turned away, helping more than 20,000 individuals in Pittsburgh and the surrounding counties last year alone. As the largest comprehensive social service/civil rights organization in Southwestern Pennsylvania, the Pittsburgh Urban League helps others to help themselves through extra-curricular educational opportunities, health advocacy, housing counseling, parental education and support for early childhood and youth development, hunger prevention services, sustainable wage career preparation, and other programs that lead to improved ability to achieve economic empowerment and self-reliance. Ninety-nine years of service to the African American community in our region has earned the Urban League the community’s trust. The Urban League’s voice has gained a reputation for untarnished credibility which we strive to use strategically in order to reduce structural barriers and improve access to opportunities for those we serve.
