Our Community

Organizations Team Up to Support Needy Families, Independence Day Festivities

Two local nonprofits are joining forces to benefit our community. On Saturday, June 23, the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Pittsburgh will be accepting gently used clothing and housewares in the parking area at Brentwood Park.  At the conclusion of this collection drive, all donations will be weighed and will be used to calculate the amount of a cash contribution that will be provided to the Brentwood July 4th Committee.  If you have uneeded items cluttering your closet, join us from 10AM to 1PM to fund the mission critical activities of these two worthwhile entities.  For more information, view the attached flyer

Golfers Can Provide Critical Aid to Local Emergency Service & Business Organizations

 

As summer temperatures descend upon our region, area golfers are busy penciling in tee times at their favorite local courses. Why not devote your next round to a worthwhile cause? Hit the links for the benefit of first responders by supporting a Brentwood EMS event at Victory Hills Golf Course in Elizabeth Township on June 8th. For a $100 entrance fee, participants also receive three meals. To register, call 412-884-8740. Just ten days later, residents of Brentwood, Baldwin, and Whitehall can swing and putt their way through 18 holes at South Hills Country Club. Greens fees are $70, and proceeds of this event assist the Chamber of Commerce. An enrollment form can be completed here. Admission passes make great gifts for dad!    

Blood Drive Offers Holiday Cheer in Exchange for Lifesaving Donations

Each November, families gather around the dinner table to celebrate the blessings in their lives. After the turkey is carved, the football games conclude, and the hectic frenzy of Black Friday shopping is culminated, won't you take some time to pay it forward? The Central Blood Bank will hold a drive on Saturday, November 24th at the Brentwood Library Community Room. The event will take place from 10AM to 3PM. In exchange for making a difference in the lives of those with serious medical needs, each participant will receive a complimentary pass to the Kennywood Holiday Lights Show.
