We excited to host PGH Hand-Made Heart on Saturday, February 2, 1 - 3 PM. Join us to make a handmade heart and tagging it with a positive message that can be placed in public to share compassion throughout Pittsburgh.
On October 27, 2018, worshipers at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA, were attacked in a senseless act of hatred. In response, local artist Barb Grossman and her family started "PGH Hand-Made Hearts" to make and place handmade hearts in public places as vivid reminders of the power of kindness. The mission of this project is to foster compassion for those impacted by acts of violence and hatred, as well as to discourage future acts of this nature. Let’s #ShareAHeartPgh, with #PghHandMadeHearts.Find out more »
