Donations will go into the Pittsburgh Striker Fund, used exclusively to assist striking Pittsburgh Post-Gazette families with special needs who are facing very difficult financial circumstances.

Being on strike is a hardship for every family. Some may have resources that they can turn to in these difficult times, but others will have extraordinary needs that they’ve been struggling to meet even before going on strike. Individuals and groups may donate directly to the fund.
