Play it Forward Pittsburgh assists families in offering brighter holidays to children by through an annual toy drive, collecting gently used items and giving them away free to families in need. Play it Forward Pittsburgh is 100% donation driven.  Every item collected is given away and every dollar raised goes directly to support the costs of hosting of the drive, including rental space and supplies. Play it Forward Pittsburgh is also 100% volunteer driven, providing service opportunities for individuals, groups and families, including children of all ages. If you’d like to contribute to the mission of Play it Forward, be sure to tell your Co-op cashier to round up your total throughout the month of October.
