Events with Birthright share the heart of what we do with the community.

You can get involved with Birthright of Pittsburgh by hosting your own event, or attending one of ours!

Get Involved

Host a Baby Shower or Event to Collect Infant Clothing

Get your school or organization to host a shower, party, or event to collect clothing. One of the ways Birthright of Pittsburgh provides practical assistance to clients upon the arrival of a new baby is by giving a layette. Our center has preemie to 12 month size clothing that is new or gently worn. 

Some of the items we supply are receiving blankets, undershirts, sleepers, outfits, dresses, snowsuits, socks and diapers. Often we receive beautiful knitted or crocheted blankets, sweaters, dresses, mittens, hats and booties.

Annual Parish Red Rose Day

The annual Red Rose Day is a collection held at your church. After first obtaining permission from your pastor for a designated collection weekend, a notice is placed in your parish bulletin about two weeks in advance and on the day of the collection. A sample bulletin announcement is included in instructions that will be sent you.

A Red Rose Day coordinator arranges for parish volunteers to collect money following all weekend services. Volunteers may hold a basket or canister for donations at parish exits and in turn, donors are given a red paper rose (the symbol of pro-life).  At the conclusion of the collections, the coordinator mails Birthright a check.

Collections may be held on a date of your pastor’s choice. For example, October – Respect Life month; December – Christmas; January – to commemorate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade; February –  Valentine’s Day; Easter; May – Mother’s Day; or June – Father’s Day, or any day your pastor selects throughout the year.

Free supplies of paper roses, Birthright literature (including Spanish brochures), small posters, sample church bulletin announcements and bulletin board notices will be mailed upon request. Call 412-621-1988 for more information.
