Outreach offices have expanded

North Hills Community Outreach has expanded its North Boroughs office by 50 percent to offer more services and increase privacy for those who visit the Allegheny General Hospital Suburban campus building, 100 S. Jackson Ave.

The office space and food pantry on floor 2 South in the hospital will remain open, and more office space will open on the first floor off the lobby.

The expansion was through a partnership with West Penn-Allegheny Health System, which rents the space to NHCO for $1 per month. The Bellevue location, which was opened in 2000, is one of five NHCO offices.

Last year, the office served 1,359 families, providing $131,193 in food, housing and utility assistance. The location also houses its Faith In Action caregiving for seniors program.


Students receive sculpture in Ireland

Ten students in La Roche College's Sports and Entertainment Marketing course accepted an honor from the Lord Mayor of Kerry County in Ireland during a recent study abroad trip.

The trip was offered through the college's Study Abroad+Study USA program, which provides students with the opportunity to study abroad or domestically at little or no cost.

Students met with the Kerry County Council to learn more about that district's progress, major industries and sports marketing as well as its issues and concerns.

Lord Mayor Terry O'Brien and county manager Tom Curran presented the students with a stained glass sculpture to commemorate their visit to Kerry County and to symbolize the relationship between Ireland and the U.S.
