Working toward the vision that no one in Northern Allegheny County should be hungry, cold, or alone, North Hills Community Outreach (NHCO) assists those dealing with hardship and poverty through a variety of services. These services include free computer training, utility assistance, college scholarships for non-traditional students, and emergency financial help. Thanks to the volunteers who work in the Rosalinda Sauro Sirianni Garden—a community-based, organic garden—NHCO has helped grow and share fresh produce at its two area food pantries. In 2012, the garden produced approximately 4,500 pounds of organic food. See how Groupon helps you discover local causes and lend a helping hand at the Groupon Grassroots blog.

Founded in 1936, Culligan has spent the better part of a century supplying customers throughout the state with bottles of purified water, which is free of lead, chlorine, and other impurities. The company’s rigorous, IBWA- and EPA-compliant water-purification process reduces microscopic contaminants more effectively than standard carbon filters or a Lilliputian with a butterfly net. A personable employee installs the freestanding water cooler, which dispenses round-the-clock chilled aqua and comes in several spill-proof, futuristic designs that complement the décor of any living room or the lounge area of any spaceship. Producing a crisp liquid that’s safer and tastier than tap water, Culligan’s coolers can ably irrigate parched pets, foster a tastier tea or coffee, and eliminate the need for pollutant plastic bottles.

The YMCA Adventure Warrior Race gives kids and adults a chance to prove themselves against ropes courses, mud, water obstacles, and other unexpected mental and physical challenges—all while supporting a good cause. Amid the breathtaking views and tranquil waters of Lake Tris, runners maneuver around trees and carry heavy objects up the sometimes snow-covered Laurel Highlands mountains, climbing up to 1,000 feet as they go. Warriors aged 16 and older make a 4-mile circuit, whereas younger participants run age-appropriate distances of a half mile or a full mile. Trophies and the respect of all the woodland creatures are awarded to the top male and female runners, top male and female teams, and top co-ed team. According to the Daily American, funds raised from the race provide camp scholarships that allow kids to attend residential and day programs at the 263-acre YMCA Camp T. Frank Soles.

Participants in Best Buddies’ Ambassadors Leadership Program receive training in speech writing and public speaking so they can become advocates for those with IDD and the Best Buddies programs. They'll learn the necessary tools to help spread awareness to eliminate the use of hurtful words such as "retard" from everyday language and ultimately create opportunities for others with IDD to socialize and become more involved in their communities. After completing training, Ambassadors can speak to local legislators and Best Buddies chapters, train others with IDD, and work at recruitment fairs and other Best Buddies events.
