Community support: The importance of RIDC’s gift to the Urban League

A lovely opinion piece by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Editorial Board.

“No organization ever need be locked into a box, and RIDC proved itself to be more than just a real estate developer with this gift. The group’s creative thinking is the exact sort Pittsburgh will need to lift up families in need.

RIDC’s donation also underscores the importance of cooperation between community organizations. Finding solutions that address the social, economic and political inequities in the Pittsburgh area will require the kind of innovative thinking that results when the region’s brightest minds come together. RIDC’s generosity is laudable, but its recognition and support of the Urban League’s mission is even more powerful.”
