In February 2019, we launched our S.A.F.E. Program: Sharing Appreciation for Fire Department Excellence. This program gives $2,500 donations to local volunteer fire departments. We kicked off the program with a Twitter poll, and the Youngstown VFD received our first donation!
Peoples and the Community
Our community commitment is an essential part of our mission to make lives better.
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.- Carey Abdulovic, Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium
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.- Peter Ward, Urban Impact
