Pittsburgh, Pa. — The Standard Charitable Foundation, with support from Standard Bank, has awarded a $5,000 grant to Pennies from Heaven, a Pittsburgh-focused charity that supports economically challenged families so they may remain with their sick children who are admitted to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Pennies from Heaven is striving to raise the $100,000 minimum necessary to permanently endow the organization at Children’s Hospital and ensure the charity’s longevity.
Pennies from Heaven has supported more than 300,000 families since its inception. In big ways and small ways, keeping families together during difficult times is important to the healing process, parents, and most importantly, to sick children.
