Some of our past initiatives...

2010 Book Drive

Colombia en Pittsburgh will be collecting your used books on an ongoing basis. All books will be donated to Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.

Promote CEP, support the needs of the growing Spanish-speaking community in Pittsburgh, and clean out your bookshelves! We are counting on you to make the book drive a success and to reach 100 book donations!

Contact us if you have any questions, or to schedule a book drop-off or pick-up.

Journals, Books, Computers

Do you have journals, books or computers that you would like to donate?

The "Colombia en Pittsburgh" group is collecting different educational items to send to libraries and schools in Colombia. Through academic, cultural and social activities we raise money to cover the expenses of transporting goods that could benefit many students and support the work of academic communities in our troubled country.

Please contact us and let us know what you would like to donate. We will pick the donations up and once we send them, we will inform you who the recipients of your help were.

2002 Hammock Raffle

The little fellas who appear in the following photographs are Colombian kids, from "El Portal", receiving some T-shirts, and from the "Fundacion Milagro de amor" ("Miracle of Love Fundation") with their new beds. Both the T-shirts and the beds were the fruit of our 2002 Hammock Raffle.
