Join your neighbors and other Upper St. Clair residents at dusk on Sunday, Dec. 8 for Upper St. Clair’s first annual Light Up For Unity Night.
For many years, the Upper St. Clair community has participated in joining its neighbors in lighting luminaria during the winter holidays. This year, three community groups—The Community Foundation of Upper St. Clair, The Upper St. Clair/Bethel Park Breakfast Rotary Club, and the Upper St. Clair Band Parents Association, along with sponsor Brentwood Bank—are coming together to host Light Up for Unity Night to celebrate our community and its differences.
Regardless of what holiday we celebrate, there are two things we find in common: our hope for a more peaceful world and light to show us the way.
To participate, USC residents need only set out luminaria on Sunday, December 8 at dusk. Community members are further encouraged to turn on their assembled holiday outdoor light displays to fully engage in this community-inspired opportunity.

CHIP is short for the Children's Health Insurance Program - Pennsylvania's program to provide health insurance to uninsured children and teens who are not eligible for or enrolled in Medical Assistance. Nine out of 10 CHIP parents report satisfaction with their child’s health plan, and 96% received an appointment for check-ups and vaccinations as soon as they wanted.
There are a lot of reasons kids might not have health insurance - maybe their parents lost a job, don't have health insurance at work or maybe it just costs too much. Whatever the reason, CHIP may be able to help. All families need to do is apply today.
