How to Get Involved

Looking to get involved? There are several ways that you can help — from donating directly, to participating in a clean up, to supporting our seasonal fundraisers. We look forward to hearing from you!



Give Directly

Donating is easy! Donate to South Side Community Council via PayPal or Venmo. We also accept personal checks mailed to our P.O. box address.

South Side Community Council is a registered organization in Benevity. Benevity is a charitable donation-giving and grant-management platform. Several Pittsburgh-area companies use this system, and we’re grateful their employees have given to the SSCC through it.

Annual Fundraisers

The SSCC has several annual fundraisers: the pie sale, the plant sale, and the poinsettia sale.

Pie Sale

Get your pies for the holidays! The council’s annual pie sale features frozen pies for purchase. 


Beautiful poinsettia plants to decorate for the holidays. Great for hostess gifts, gifts for family and friends, or just to make your own home merry and bright.


When it’s time for spring planting, our plant sale features beautiful flowers, herbs and vegetables for purchase. The order forms go out in March and the pick up is in early May. Plant Order Form
