Our Heroes, Our Lifeline

The R.E.A.A.D.Y. Foundation would like to thank our all medical professionals, caregivers, and frontline workers for their commitment, courage, and caring during these difficult times. Their dedication makes them true Heroes!

Our foundation is a 501c3 organization whose mission is to support Performing Arts students (www.reaadyfoundation.org ). One of our core beliefs is to give back to the community through a variety of outreach programs. During this current COVID-19 pandemic we are all facing, the R.E.A.A.D.Y. Foundation realizes that many children do not have reliable access to nutritious food. As more and more Americans find themselves without a paycheck, this need continues to rise. The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank has programs in place during these challenging times to provide food for families in need.

The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank’s priority remains focused on providing food and resources to those in need in our community — a demand that continues to increase significantly through this current pandemic.

We at the R.E.A.A.D.Y. Foundation, would like to help provide more food for these families in need. If you enjoyed watching our virtual Thank You performance for our healthcare professional and frontline workers, we invite you to make a donation.  Your gift, no matter the amount, will help to feed a family in need in our community. All donations will go directly to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

Please join us in helping our neighbors during this time of urgent need.  We realize that circumstances are different for everyone.  If you are unable to donate today, please consider sharing our fundraising link https://www.gofundme.com/f/our-pulse-our-heroes?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=p_cf+share-flow-1
and help us reach more people who can give and share as well.

Thank You for your support!
