Post by 
Zoe Frantz

Hi, there! Are you looking for a way to give back within your Pittsburgh community? You’ve come to the right place! Here at Birgo, we believe in giving back to the communities where we live and work. As a company, we look to celebrate service as a way of life. By partnering with local organizations to serve as teams in the places where we work, Birgo provides opportunities for individuals to serve with organizations dear to their hearts. Continue reading for a list of some of the many organizations you can volunteer at in the Pittsburgh area.

Light of Life Rescue Mission

Light of Life is a Christ-centered nonprofit organization providing food, shelter, and hope to those experiencing homelessness, poverty, or addiction in the Pittsburgh area. The mission provides over 100,000 meals annually, serving breakfast and dinner 7 days a week. Working in the kitchen at Light of Life is a great way to give back to the community. There are also opportunities to volunteer in their Men’s, Women’s, and Children’s Life Recovery Programs. Giving back through Life of Light allows you to develop a deeper connection with members of the Pittsburgh community.

Red Cross Blood Drive

Blood donors form a heart with their hands

Donating blood is always a great option to give back. Did you know that donating blood one time can save up to three lives? All it takes is an hour out of your day to provide a resource to those in need. An average of 38,000 blood donations are needed every day, so the Red Cross regularly hosts drives to collect blood. Check out their website to find a donation center near you.

Food Drive

The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank provides meals to those experiencing hunger in the community. There are options to donate money, food, or your time. Volunteers are the heart of the mission to feed people in need. From food sorting to building health food boxes, there are countless opportunities to volunteer at the Food Bank. It’s a great option for a company-wide initiative as well.

Carnegie Library

A library patron reaches for a book at the library.

The Carnegie Library is an institution of the Pittsburgh community. In order to remain “Free to the People,” the library relies on donations and volunteers in order to remain in commission. Giving back to the Carnegie Library now includes project-based volunteering such as mentoring teens, teaching computer skills, providing homework help, leading book discussions, helping with special events, and more. Check out their website to see all available volunteer opportunities.

Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy

Point State Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

While it might be known as the “Steel City,” Pittsburgh has tons of beautiful parks and relies on volunteers in order to maintain them! The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy offers volunteer opportunities for all ages, interests, and abilities. This is the perfect option for those who enjoy being outdoors and want to contribute to the beautiful scenery in Pittsburgh. To get involved, visit their website to see all of their upcoming service events!


We hope we were able to provide you with a variety of volunteer opportunities available throughout Pittsburgh. You certainly can’t go wrong with giving back to your community!
