In December, each office plans a community give-back that’s meaningful to them. Net Healthers have adopted families, organized coat/warm gear collections, led toy drives, and donated mounds to food banks. Our Pittsburgh office is collecting presents for eight families served by Primary Care Health Services, Inc, an organization that provides healthcare to medically underserved people, […]

In the Pittsburgh office, the local Shadyside Nursery brought plants and supplies so we could build our own pint-sized terrariums. Turns out gardening is relaxing, even in miniature form!
Pittsburgh’s Our Clubhouse “Over the Edge” event is a blast, if you like sliding down a 21-story building on a rope. Turns out, we do. After a mega-successful first showing in 2015 we’re doing it again. From nine volunteers, Christina Lamanna and Mel Eisele were crowned for top fundraising. Net Healthers raised over $3,000. Boom!
