North Hills Community Outreach has been a lifesaver for many in the North Hills of Pittsburgh for decades. They feed and clothe the poor, collect school supplies for students every fall, and provide numerous services for the unemployed, the newly poor, and the disabled. No other non-profit in my area provides the superb services for so many as NHCO.

When I bought a new car two years ago, I gave them my old car. When my cell phones are replaced, they use cell phones for abused women's safety. When they have a food drive, I donate. When they sell citrus each winter to raise money, I purchase it. This organization is surely one of the best in the country.

NHCO is an excellent community community partner and well run organization. By relying on donations and volunteers, they are able to achieve great things with donated funds. Their commitment to creating a sustainable garden in order to provide healthy produce for their food pantries is just one fantastic example of the quality organization they are!

NHCO is an incredible asset to our community. They provide a wide variety of programs for those in need. Those programs address immediate need, such as the food pantry, and others provide information and training for participants to make a better life for themselves. They continue to provide the assistance for neighbors in need and help them get back on their feet again. I am happy to be a donor and will continue to support this amazing organization.

There are only 2 organizations I donate to and North Hills Community Outreach is one of the two. They are one of the most caring organizations I have come across. I recommend them to anyone who needs a helping hand.
