A North Hills social service agency is seeking donations to help hundreds of families affected by flooding this month.

North Hills Community Outreach is asking individuals, businesses, congregations and other organizations for cash donations and gift cards for Lowes, Home Depot, Target, Kmart, Walmart and local grocery stores to help people with the costs of cleanup and to replace furnaces, electrical work and appliances.

Checks can be mailed to NHCO, 1975 Ferguson Road, Allison Park, PA 15101. To donate online see: nhco.org.

People living in the organization’s service area, which includes communities north of the City of Pittsburgh, who were affected by flooding can contact NHCO to determine if they are eligible for assistance.

To learn more, send an email to: [email protected] or call 412-408-3830.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
