Realtors Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh Donates PC to Carrick Regency

Today (April 30, 2015) the Community Service Committee of RAMP completed the first of many initiatives that will be fulfilled this year.  The Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP) welcomed representatives of the REALTORS Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh (RAMP) to the Carrick Regency High Rise at 2129 Brownsville Road in Carrick.  RAMP's Community Service Committee presented a personal computer to be provided to the senior citizens and disabled individuals who reside at the Carrick Regency.

HACP and the Carrick Regency Tenant Council were thankful to RAMP for the generous donation and their ongoing efforts to connect senior citizens with access to computers and internet service.
William Russo, Community Service Committee Co-Chairman for RAMP said, “Our goal is to mobilize our association to engage the communities we service through philanthropic endeavors related to housing. We feel it is important to engage senior citizens and people in need.”  The current initiative of the association is to place computers in buildings that house elderly and disabled tenants. A series of community service projects will be executed by the Realtors Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh throughout the year.

As part of RAMP's upcoming community service initiatives, we are collecting donations of yarn and knitting & crochet needles to provide to local seniors and volunteers who will make hats and scarves for the homeless in our area.

Want to join the efforts? Drop off locations are RAMP Headquarters (1427 West Liberty Avenue/15226) or Howard Hanna Real Estate Wexford office (2100 Corporate Drive in Wexford/15090)
