$9,270 DONATED TO NORTH HILLS COMMUNITY OUTREACH

We thank you so much for your compassion for our neighbors! Together, we raised $9,270 for North Hills Community Outreach!  Due to your overwhelming response, PROF raised our donation to $3,500 – which you generously matched – and then some!

Your thoughtful giving will provide much-needed services for families in our community.  As we stated in our letter to you, the NHCO will immediately put these funds to use to help our neighbors with their needs of food, clothing, emergency services and more. 

We continue to be amazed at the thoughtfulness of all who have contributed, especially during such uncertain times.  “Thank you” doesn’t seem nearly enough to express how grateful we are to be a part of such a caring community that supports one another – whether it is in this new initiative for our neighbors, PROF grants and scholarships programs, and in your time and talents you continuously share. 


"Where I Am From" - PROF-Supported Project Featured on WQED

WhereIAmFrom.jpgWith a grant from PROF, Mr. Riley brought together students from Pine-Richland High School students and students from his alma mater Woodland Hill High School to create art works about “where they are from,” just as Riley's exhibition will revolve around the same theme. The students' works will be presented on 12-inch panel surfaces. 

Mr. Riley said that “Where I Am From” is cultural experience that could not happen within a single school. “Where I Am From” unites two schools with vastly different socio-economic, ethnic and geographic dynamics. Mr. Ramon Riley is connecting students from both schools to share in the arts community.
