2019 Day of Smiles: Sharing Smiles

Our nickname may be “The Place for Smiles” but we also love creating smiles within our community. On April 2nd, we held our 4th Annual Day of Smiles, an event that gathered over 150 of our team members to volunteer at 11 different community service projects throughout the city.

As a company, we invest at least 5% of our pre-tax earnings to support nonprofit organizations – and though we support a wide variety of causes, we focus our efforts on three areas:  Sharing Smiles, Growing Smiles, and Hero Smiles. Click here to read more about each.

On Day of Smiles, four of our service projects were focused on “Sharing Smiles” by supporting family wellness and fitness. Read on to learn about how our team spent their day!

First Tee of Pittsburgh
Fore! One of our volunteer teams helped to beautify the golf course at The First Tee of Pittsburgh, an organization that helps to build character, instills life-enhancing values, and promotes healthy choices to young people through the game of golf.

Sarah Heinz House 
Another one of our volunteer teams headed to the Sarah Heinz House, where they helped to clean and spruce up the campus for the spring season! With a focus on character, service, and leadership, Sarah Heinz House provides enriching programs where kids learn to make healthy choices while participating in fun, challenging activities.

Best of the Batch
A team of our volunteers visited Munhall to help the Best of the Batch Foundation, which was established by former Steeler, Charlie Batch. They helped to put together hygiene kits for kids in the after-school program!

Camp Guyasuta
Camp Guyasuta is a day-camp and Boy Scout camp focused on outdoor play and activity! The camp was impacted by severe flooding a few months ago and our volunteers helped to get the grounds into tip-top shape in time for summer! They even helped build a bridge!
