This football season, get ready to cheer on the Pittsburgh Steelers defense and help raise money for Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania through the 2019 Sacks for Kids Fundraiser! Once again, join Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward and his foundation The Heyward House to raise critical funds to support our Clubhouses! 


Fans can make a pledge of any amount from 50¢ and up for every sack recorded for the Steelers defense throughout the 2019 NFL Regular Season. The Heyward House will then match every donation, dollar for dollar, up to $8,000! These proceeds will directly benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania and our 8 neighborhood Clubhouses!


There are some special rewards for individuals who pledge within a certain range.

Anyone who pledges at the $10 per sack level will receive a special Cam Heyward T-Shirt.

Anyone who pledges at the $20 per sack level will receive a special Cam Heyward T-Shirt and Two (2) tickets to The Heyward House Homecoming with Cam and his teammates on November 4, 2019 at Carnegie Science Center! 

“This campaign goes beyond football. It’s about giving to those who truly need and deserve our support. Thank you for supporting my cause and all of your support throughout my career!”

Boys & Girls Club of Western Pennsylvania is a unique organization consisting of eight Clubhouses. Our goal is to provide every young person with the essential tools needed for a successful and bright future. Since 1888, when we were founded, the vision of Boys & Girls Clubs has grown and changed with the needs of our youth. In recent years, we have grown our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and Workforce Development Programs. Every day, Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania strive to improve each young person’s life by growing self-esteem, courage, and positive values through our programs. Over 7,600 youth come to our Clubhouses or participate in our programs every year to receive tutoring and homework help, technical training, sports, fitness and recreation, arts programs, summer programming, career readiness, and a safe place to be with friends and mentoring. Our youth gain confidence by developing a sense of competence, usefulness, positive influence and belonging.

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP! Sacks for Kids will help thousands of kids reap the benefits of Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania’s sports programs, teaching them teamwork, responsibility, healthy lifestyles, hard work, and resilience. Thank you for your support!
