MBA proudly supports many local organizations like Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh, ACE Mentor Program, The Mario Lemieux Foundation, and Toys for Tots, to name a few. The aforementioned organizations work on improving various aspects of the community, as well as the lives of children in need. Many of our members are active participants, serving on Boards and donating their time and resources to these great causes. MBA events held throughout the year serve as fundraisers for these organizations.
Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh
Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh was launched by the MBA and the Carpenters Union in 1993 as an organization that repairs and renovates the homes of seniors, veterans, and persons with physical disabilities. The repairs are completely cost-free to the homeowners, thanks to the support and generosity of many MBA members, local building trades unions, Pittsburgh schools, and corporations looking to lend a helping hand.
