Prince of Peace Center in Farrell approached the UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation with a grant request to purchase a new van that seated up to seven passengers.  UPMC challenged Prince of Peace Center to raise $5,000 and if so, we would match their efforts with a $5,000 matching grant to purchase the van.  Prince of Peace was so successful in their fundraising efforts that they raised enough funding to receive the $5,000 matching grant from UPMC and in October 2015, purchased two used vans!  The vans are used primarily for two Prince of Peace programs: Family Support Services (HOPE Advocacy Progran and Project RUTH  Program) and AWESOME, life skills classes.  These programs assist over 75 people a year and 28 families a year! The vans can also be used to pick up and deliver food and donations when needed.  UPMC is proud to support the Prince of Peace Center.

IMG_0924September 2015 was a record-breaking year for the UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation’s Annual Poker Run.  This, the tenth anniversary of the event, saw a registration of 155 riders and generated a whopping $3,300 for the Transportation Fund.  This year, the ride was 164 miles and the winner with the best poker hand won $150.00.  Because it was the 10th Anniversary, one lucky winner walked away with a great overnight package at the Foxburg Winery and Inn/Allegheny Grill.
