    The North Hills Community Outreach has its own produce garden, right in the heart of Pittsburgh's North Side. It provides fresh fruits and vegetables directly to NHCO's food pantry, and also creates a beautiful space where the community can come together to support their neighbors. We're proud to partner with such a fantastic organization that offers so many services to people in need.

    We talked with two of our partners, the North Hills Community Outreach and Northside Common Ministries, about the importance of that collaboration, so that we can all work together to make lives better.

Through the years, Peoples has supported many worth-while causes, important community projects, and deserving organizations. And we don’t just provide monetary support. Our employees provide thousands of hours of volunteer service to organizations within our communities. By supporting these groups, we are committed to making an impact. 

With over 1,300 employees across three states, we quite literally have our boots on the ground in hundreds of communities every day. But we don't just work in these communities — we live there, too. The same causes that are near-and-dear to your heart also resonate with our employees, which is why it's so important for us to support those organizations. 

When we begin a new partnership, we ask that group, "What is going to make a difference for your organization?" We don't just want to put our logo on a banner; we want to work with our partners side by side to enable change, to drive programs, and to truly make a difference.  

Having Peoples as a community partner has been the perfect fit for the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. Not only do we share a love for the environment and preserving our planet, but also getting out into the community and teaching others how little changes can make a big difference. With limited resources to go around, it is our job to educate and protect. By working together, our passion grows.

Urban Impact considers Peoples a key partner in the work we do to transform students’ lives on the North Side of Pittsburgh. We sincerely appreciate the support that Peoples provided to enable us to start our Job, Inc. Program. More than that, we are inspired by their genuine concern for the community and children. Peoples is always seeking ways to get directly involved with Urban Impact beyond their generous financial support. We look forward to continuing to deepen our relationship with Peoples.

    Peoples is proud to be an ongoing partner of the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania. Over the past two years, we've supported their Torch Run, which kicks off their summer games, and the Polar Plunge in Pittsburgh. In 2019, we're launching a renwed partnership with the Special Olympics that focuses on supporting Unified Sports opportunities and promoting health and wellness for Special Olympics athletes.

    “We at Special Olympics Pennsylvania value our partnership with Peoples and look forward to every interaction with their employees," says SOPA Special Events Manager Carrie Hucker Jaumann. "Peoples understands the value of inclusion and have made it a top priority throughout our partnership. They are always there to support and cheer on the athletes of SOPA!
