Allegheny County gift drive to benefit vulnerable kids runs through Dec 5

Allegheny County’s 2011 Department of Human Services Holiday Project, now underway, collects gifts for children and youth who receive services through the Department of Human Services Office of Children, Youth & Families. The gift drive will run through Monday, December 5.

For information about sponsoring specific children through a gift drive or making monetary donations, contact the DHS Event & Donations Team at 412-350-3428 or

DHS has also partnered with businesses across the county to set up conveniently located drop-off sites for individuals who want to donate a gift. The Holiday Project is always in need of new, unwrapped multicultural toys and books for children of all ages.
