Pittsburgh, August 14, 2014 – Launched in Pittsburgh in 2011 by five enthusiastic gay young professionals, Gay For Good has impacted many in its three years, having worked with 28 area non-profits ranging from Tree Pittsburgh to The East End Cooperative Ministry to The Cancer Caring Center. Gay For Good: Pittsburgh has clocked in over 4,800 volunteer hours.
“Our organization is unique in that, while comprised of primarily LGBT members, it does not operate with the primary objective of benefiting the LGBT community. We provide help wherever it is needed and welcomed.” said Jared Pascoe, co-founder of Gay For Good: Pittsburgh.
On Wednesday, August 27 from 6:00p – 8:00p, Spin Bartini (5744 Ellsworth, Shadyside) will host Gay For Good: Pittsburgh’s third year anniversary happy hour. G4G will be collecting item donations for the Ronald McDonald House of Pittsburgh’s wish list. The night will include a cash bar, raffle prizes and good people will be in attendance.
Founded in Los Angeles in 2008, Gay For Good aims to energize and mobilize the LGBT community to interact with the broader community by volunteering the time of its members to various social welfare and environmental service projects. Each month, Gay For Good members donate their time to a community service project that benefits a local non-profit organization. Participants do not need to be a member of the LGBT community to join Gay For Good or to participate in any of its community service projects. Gay For Good has ten chapter cities across the country.
