Save Lives by Hosting a Blood Drive

Vitalant has partnered with SHIM to encourage blood donations. For every donor who gives blood, the Blood Science Foundation will donate $15 to SHIM. One blood donation can save up to three lives, and through this partnership donations will also feed families, nurture students, and build community.

Contact Rachel White at rwhite@shimcares.org or 412-854-9120 ext. 112 for more information.

Together, we can do anything.

To say these are tough times is an understatement. But every difficult challenge we’ve undertaken, we’ve been able to accomplish because of you. Rather than face the continued increase in need with fear, we are unwavering with hope. Because in tough times, the South Hills comes together.

Thanks to our generous community we raised $6.8 million to help us do more good!
