Donation Made to Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank

“Food changes everything.” Today, Alina’s Light had the honor of donating $500.00 to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. According to their website, $1.00 is enough to provide five meals to those that are in need. This is proof that even small efforts make a huge difference, and we are so honored to do so in Alina’s memory. We are looking forward to working more with this wonderful organization in the future.


Sheykhet’s Visit Tapestry Senior Living

Alina’s Light brought sunshine to Tapestry Senior Living in Moon Township during these dreary times. We donated a variety of games and activities to keep residents busy and assist with their motor skills. Alina spent time as a volunteer at various nursing homes during her time as a member of OACS at Pitt-Greensburg. We are honored to follow in her footsteps and keep her memory alive in the hearts of ourselves and others.

Slapshots for the Sheykhets

This afternoon, the Pitt Women’s Club Ice Hockey hit the ice once again in Alina’s memory. They wore purple uniforms to honor domestic violence victims. We are so touched that the team had another game in honor of our angel, Alina. Thank you to all players and organizers of the game for helping us spread Alina’s light and awareness. Thank you so much to all of our ongoing supporters – we are incessantly grateful!

Domestic Violence Seminar

Tonight, Alina’s Light had the honor of participating in a Domestic Violence Seminar organized by Anita Kulik. It was our pleasure to meet with organizations that share our values of providing support and education on the topic of domestic violence.

2020 Winter Jamfest to End Domestic Violence

We had the honor of bringing Alina’s story to her alma mater, Montour High School, at the 2020 Winter Jamfest to End Domestic Violence. We held 5 presentations for a total of 10 teams from different states. Educating young men and women about the dangers of dating violence is one of many causes we are passionate about. A special thank you to Phil Peckich, TD Sports, and Montour dance boosters for providing us the opportunity to share our mission, raise awareness of domestic violence, and spread Alina’s light.We are hopeful that Alina’s story will continue to make an impact and ultimately save lives.
