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.
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!
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.
Alina’s Light decked the halls at the Women’s Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh on December 23, 2019. We decorated cookies, ornaments, and even had a special appearance from one of our board members – Santa Claus himself! Santa brought gifts for every child and mother to brighten their holiday. We are so grateful to be involved with such a wonderful organization and be able to serve such amazing women and children. Happy holidays to all!
