  • Easter Bunny visits and Egg Hiding: proceeds benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank

    Hi, my name is Isaac Bernstein, a junior at USC high school. This spring break, I am once again transforming into the Easter Bunny. To date, I’ve been able to donate almost 100,000 meals with your help. Let’s make my 4th year of Easter services a great one!

    I offer two services for Easter: the bunny visits and the egg hiding.

    The Easter egg hiding will take place in your yard on either Saturday evening or very early Sunday morning by me or a designated volunteer. The eggs will be filled with nut-free candy. I will leave a personalized letter for your child(ren) from the bunny for them to find in the morning as well with the information you provide on the form.

    Easter bunny visits are also offered. I will come to your house dressed as the Easter bunny and spend time with your family. I will stay for 15 minutes to spend time with your children. Parents, you are welcome to take as many photos of your children with the Easter Bunny as you would like during this time.

    All events can be booked and paid for through my website. As always, all donations will go directly to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.


    With any questions, please reach out to info@platesforpitt.org.

    Thank you all so much!

    All the best,

  • Pennsylvania's Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)

    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.
