    Kindness Matters

    Kindness Matters shirts raise $3,358 for Jewish Federation

    Catherine Sandford The Upper St. Clair community raised $3,358 to benefit the Tree of Life Synagogue victims and their families. Funds, which will be sent to the Jewish Federation, were raised through the sale of Kindness Matters shirts and sweatshirts – designed by an Upper St. Clair High School alumna and produced by the school’s SHOP@USC program.

    The Kindness Matters artwork, featuring a line drawing of the Pittsburgh skyline, was created by Catherine Sandford, a 2018 Upper St. Clair High School graduate, following the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill. Catherine recently completed her freshman year at the University of Pittsburgh, where she is majoring in marketing.
