RenewPittsburgh - Support Youth Football in Homewood!

RenewPittsburgh is sponsoring an on-line fundraiser during September to support the Homewood Community Sports Youth Football program!  You may have heard that there was a tragic triple shooting outside of the team's home opener last month. 

Please consider sponsoring a player for $25 each, and 100% of the proceeds of the fundraiser will help take care of the equipment needs, purchase gift cards for players, and support additional security at future games. Please consider helping us reach our goal of raising $2,500 for the team, and we would greatly appreciate your support.

You can donate to support the team by clicking on the donation button below.

We also have featured a donation thermometer on the RenewPittsburgh homepage, to track the progress toward our goal.  

We think it is critical that we show these kids and coaches that there is City-wide support for what they are trying to accomplish. Many of us have witnessed firsthand the great work that these players and coaches are doing in the Homewood community. For many of these kids, the football team provides a unique outlet for learning the virtues of teamwork and discipline.

Thanks very much for your invaluable support and for believing in Pittsburgh.  Please see below for additional upcoming volunteer opportunities in September and October in a local neighborhood. 
Best regards,

Kevin Acklin
Executive Director
