100+ Men Who Care Pittsburgh is proud to announce our 2nd Quarter, 2020 winner is Beverly's Birthdays. Beverly’s Birthdays provides birthday cheer for children experiencing homelessness and families in need. We spread birthday cheer 365 days a year. Today, nearly one in four children in the U.S. live at or below the poverty line. In Southwestern PA alone, there are nearly 4,000 school-aged children identified as homeless. Children living in poverty often go without the everyday items that we take for granted. Special milestones, like birthdays, are often overlooked because of their families’ personal/financial circumstances. Beverly’s Birthdays enriches the lives of the children we serve by making sure they are remembered on their special day. You can learn more and donate to their amazing cause at Donate Here! Final Donation: $7,350.00!
