Steelers Give Back To Area Kids With "Urban Impact" Event

PITTSBURGH –  Members of the Pittsburgh Steelers will team up with Urban Impact Foundation of the North Side to provide an evening football clinic for area youth tonight.

                                                      

Although one of the main purposes of the clinic is to allow youth to interact with the Steelers, the clinic also connects youth and their families to services that are available to them through North Side organizations. In the past, there have been close to 20 community organizations present with displays, games or giveaways and representatives so families can get the information they need. 

 

The North Side’s Oliver High School will host the clinic with registration beginning at 5:30 p.m. University of Pittsburgh Panther football players will be on the field helping with games and contests as the participants register. The Steelers will arrive at 6:30 p.m. for a short program with player introductions followed by the clinic at 7:00 p.m. Food will be available for purchase at minimal cost.

 

The clinic is a part of Urban Impact’s “Play Ball for Kids” partnership which works with professional athletes to help raise money through relationships with corporate and family sponsors. “These players actually care about these kids,” Urban Impact president and founder Rev. Dr. Edward Glover said.

 

Last year more than 500 kids participated in the clinic. 

 

For additional information on the clinic, please contact Cindy Dell at 412-877-5640 or cindy.dell@urbanimpactpittsburgh.org . More information about the Play Ball for Kids program can be found at www.playballforkids.org

 

About Urban Impact Foundation: Urban Impact was created in 1995 to foster Christian community development on Pittsburgh’s North Side. The focus is to help at-risk youth, children, and their families to grow academically, spiritually, physically, and socially.
