Thanks to contributions from 11 corporations through the State’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC), PHLF is involving 12 Pittsburgh Public Schools in its “Building Pride/Building Character” program of field trips, art activities, and book-publishing projects this January through June.

In March, 60 students from Pittsburgh Perry High School participated in a college tour with PHLF; 150 students from Pittsburgh Phillips explored their neighborhood and created murals; and several students from Pittsburgh Banksville were invited by SLB Radio to read the poems they had written during a February field trip with PHLF.

Fuhrer Wholesale Company, ESB Bank, UPMC, Eat’n Park Hospitality Group, Inc., Hefren-Tillotson, Inc., Maher Duessel, CPA, and Bridges & Company, Inc.
