PITT DENTAL STUDENTS FOR BLACK LIVES

“All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we’re giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That’s one of the things that connects us as neighbors–in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver.” – Fred Rogers

Help us help our Black neighbors fight injustice, racist policies, police brutality, and mass incarceration by donating to a local Pittsburgh charity. Pitt ASDA will be matching donations up to $500 for donations we receive to any of these eight local charities making a change in the Greater Pittsburgh Area. Read about each organization below.
