County Partners With Area Nonprofits to Offer Rent Relief

Although economic indicators have been recently trending in a positive direction, millions of Americans have not yet recovered from the devastating financial impacts of the pandemic. While an eviction moratorium has prevented vulnerable renters from immediately losing their homes during this crisis, it does not waive or reduce delinquent charges. The Allegheny County Department of Human Services has initiated a program to assist individuals who have been unable to pay their rent or utility fees due to lose of income. For more information, please see the attachedĀ flyer.

Blood Drive Participants Can Also Abate Hunger in Our Community

Local nonprofit Vitalant will be holding a blood drive on Tuesday, January 28th from 12PM to 6PM at the Brentwood Library Community Room. In addition to helping to ensure that hospitals and clinics retain sufficient supplies of blood to provide life saving transfusions, participants will also be aiding local families that are struggling to put food on the table. On behalf of each donor, the Blood Science Foundation will provide healthy meals to the Brentwood Community Food Bank. To protect the safety of both donors and staff, interested individuals are asked to register in advance by dialing 412-209-7000 or by visiting www.vitaliant.com.
