Heeter Cares

Heeter aims to be a good partner to its customers, but also within its community. We have supported various charities through the years and want to highlight a few of these special groups.

Allegheny Health Foundation

The Pittsburgh region is known for leadership in a number of specialties including Healthcare.

Highmark and the Allegheny Health Network are major contributors to the city’s vibrancy. Allegheny Health Network leads the way in providing the latest, most comprehensive, safe, and affordable medical care possible, all close to its patients.

Heeter was a Producer Sponsor of Allegheny Health Foundation’s “A Night Under the Stars” in which more than $3.7 million was raised for patients.

The Mel Blount Youth Home

As he approached his 50th birthday, Mel’s wife TiAnda wanted to put together a special fund raising event for the Mel Blount Youth Home. She organized a roast of the Steeler Hall of Famer; Terry Bradshaw who had not been in Pittsburgh in years agreed to emcee this first event. It was a roaring success.

Fast forward to 2019. Mel and TiAnda just hosted their 21st annual event, honoring Casey Hampton, at Heinz Field in April.

Heeter has been a sponsor of this event for all 21 of its years.

The Mel Blount Youth Home has just celebrated its 30th anniversary. The mission of the Mel Blount Youth Leadership Initiative is to provide youth with programs where they will have a healthy environment to develop character, integrity, and values which will enable them to become productive citizens.

Mel stopped by the Heeter plant recently; our team was eager to get a photo.
