WQED and Giant Eagle Present Community Champions
We see them every day and we feel their impact. They devote their time, talents and resources to making this world a better place for all of us. In a unique collaboration, Giant Eagle and WQED have teamed up to recognize some of the people and organizations in our region who are dedicated to making a difference.
What Makes A Community Champion?
The Community Champions initiative will feature change-makers whose commitment, passion, and leadership are improving the lives of individuals and the well-being of our communities. Each month, we will feature a video profile of a person and/or organization who exemplifies outstanding spirit and commitment in their chosen field.
