Sarah Heinz House, a Boys and Girls Club in the Greater Pittsburgh-area, has been selected to participate in Rite Aid’s KidCents Program to benefit nonprofit kid-focused organizations.

In order to maximize their participation and to earn a grant ranging from $5,000 -$20,000, we are asking our friends and supporters to help Sarah Heinz House reach their goal of registering 300 new Wellness+ with Plenti members by January 31.

Just for registering we can earn money to help kids at SHH!

The Power of Small Acts of Kindness

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – On a warm Sunday afternoon in July at a quaint restaurant in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, a small group of friends gathered to break bread together and to give to charity as part of the Charity Supper Club – Pittsburgh (CSC). The crowd, although smaller than expected, filled the room with rich conversation while gearing up to make cash donations toward CSC’s designated charity of the month.  As a result of their generosity, book scholarships totaling $750 were presented to two college-bound Pittsburgh area high school graduates.

The Charity Supper Club, hosted by PR Solutions LLC, was designed with one goal in mind – to use small donations to help transform the lives of people in need. No amount is too small. No goal is too insignificant. The Club has taken strides towards accomplishing its mission. Over the last several months it has presented close to $2,000 to area charities and families in need.

A Letter of ‘Thanks’ from Marven Kenol

Hello Mrs. Jackson,

As a recipient of your generous scholarship, I just want to say thank you for everything you have done. The scholarship you have given me has helped me greatly when it came to my books. As of right now I am able to buy all of the text books that I need and some of which are a little costly. For example, a math program called Aleks costs a student $90 for 18 weeks of use. As for my Introduction to music history class, the text book for that class costs $90 as well. For my Sociology class, the text book required is $110. Since I have the Scholarship, I do not have to worry about not having enough money to buy books, and I want to say thank you!
Special thanks to everyone who contributed.
What is Charity Supper Club?  An invitation-only dining experience that takes place quarterly at a different restaurant in the Greater Pittsburgh area. Guests are invited to attend, and to bring a friend, and are asked to join in the conversation, eat well and pledge either 50 or 100 percent of the total cost of their restaurant tab (minus tip) to charity. Ex. if a guest spends $90 on their meal and pledge 50% of their tab to charity, they pay $90 to the restaurant and $45 to charity. Minimum donation is $15 per dinner. For more information or to be added to the Charity Supper Club invitation list visit http://www.prsolutions123.com.
