Pittsburgh Charities We Love to Support

9/5/2018

September 5 is National Charity Day. Below, we are highlighting some of the fantastic Pittsburgh-based charities and organizations SSB Bank has worked with over the years.

Participating in our community is an honor and privilege, but it's also our responsibility. As a local community bank, we believe in our communities and in the power of giving back. As individuals, we want to live in neighborhoods that flourish, and we want to work alongside neighbors who support each other.

If you'd like to hear more about any of these amazing organizations, please reach out!

Jack and Jill Ball

The Pittsburgh Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. serves the Greater Pittsburgh area through community service and fundraising. They are focused on supporting the National Theme: "The Power to Make a Difference."

SSB Bank has supported the Pittsburgh Chapter's Jack and Jill Ball. The Presentation Ball was established in 1982 to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of junior and senior high school students in the Pittsburgh Chapter. The ball highlights the academic, civic service and athletic achievements of the chapter’s teens after a yearlong process of workshops and community service activities.
