The Pittsburgh Promise promotes the reform of urban schools so that young people are prepared for successful and meaningful lives. Their goal is to send all eligible Pittsburgh youth to college or trade school with a scholarship. American Textile’s support of the Pittsburgh Promise supports these scholarships.
Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC provides quality pediatric care to children in the Pittsburgh region and beyond. American Textile’s donation helped complete their new distraction therapy rooms. Distraction therapy prevents patient anxiety and reduces the need for sedation, which ultimately improves patient care and safety, and reduces wait times for children in need of important health and medical procedures.
