Volunteer & Giving Opportunities
The NorthSide/NorthShore Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the One Northside Initiative to connect businesses with local non-profits that have an immediate need for volunteers.
- Be A Middle School Mentor is looking for individuals for a 45 minute per week commitment at one of several Northside schools. You can make an immediate impact in the life of Northside middle schoolers, just by spending some one-on-one time with them. Check out their website here, and email Kathy Rodriguez at the United Way to find out more.
- FOCUS Pittsburgh sends home backpacks of food for elementary-school aged Northside children who otherwise may not have adequate nutrition over the weekend. They are looking for one-time or repeat backpack packings from individuals or groups. 30 volunteers are needed every Thursday from 1-3:30 pm at Oliver Citywide Academy. Please email Steven DelVitto or call him at 412-475-8125.
Please call the Chamber at 412-231-6500 if you have questions regarding these ongoing volunteer opportunities.
