PITTSBURGH (June 26, 2019) – Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC presented a donation exceeding $15,000 to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh today.

This donation follows the tragic events at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood. In light of these events, Riverhounds SC held a “Peace on the Pitch” fundraiser in November, having local communities come together for a day of soccer on Highmark Stadium’s field.

“We would like to thank our Pittsburgh communities for uniting for a greater cause to help those in a time of need,” Riverhounds SC General Manager Kevin Johnston said. “We hope this donation may provide help to those affected by our city’s tragedy.”

“We want to thank the Riverhounds organization for pulling together lovers of soccer to show solidarity with our Jewish community in our time of need,” said Jeff Finkelstein, President and CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh. “This once again shows we are stronger than hate.”
