Wilkinsburg Public Library

Who's Your Brother?

Making a difference one family at a time is the work of Who's Your Brother?, a non-profit Pittsburgh organization. Join us Monday, August 4 at 2:00 pm for The Help You Need, a 1 ½ hour class offering education, inspiration and practical instruction on how to successfully reach out to the benevolent minded members of the WYB network eager to extend help that brings healing.

Since 2011 WYB has helped more than 4000 families in need receive furniture and assistance of all kinds through its Furnish for Free Program and its Network of Web-based Benefactors.

Share and appreciate WYB’s proudest moments when you come to learn how a receiving family uses their own time, talent and resources to help another, paying forward the good they have received. Learn more and get connected at www.whosyourbrother.org.

The next meeting of the Urban Fiction Book Group will be Monday, August 25 at 6:00 pm.
