The Pittsburgh Foundation
On Aug. 9, 2022, the #ONEDAY Critical Needs Alert helped our entire community to get behind the 200+ nonprofits in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties serving vulnerable populations, in particular Black- and Brown-led nonprofits and those serving people who identify as Black, indigenous, and/or people of color (BIPOC). A total of $1,728,565* was raised through 6,061 donations to 193 organizations, including $578,000 incentive funds. (*Preliminary numbers.)

Volunteers distribute food in Lviv, Ukraine, to refugees waiting in line to cross the Ukrainian-Polish border at the Shehyni checkpoint due to Russian aggression. Thousands of people have become forced refugees with the car queue to the Shehyni checkpoint stretching for almost 20 kilometers (about 12.5 miles) with some people waiting for five days. As a result, most must cover the 12-plus miles on foot. (Photo by Pavlo Palamarchuk /SOPA Images/Sipa USA)(Sipa via AP Images)
