MedExpress, the neighborhood medical center, is launching its first Caring Cards campaign to encourage locals to share care with those that need it most. Beginning on Oct.1, Pittsburghers can visit two eight foot tall Caring Cards to send a personalized digital card to a loved one. While locals are sharing care with one another, MedExpress will show Pittsburgh it cares with a donation to support the arts programs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania and a special art workshop.

WHEN: Oct. 1-3 and Oct. 5, 2021, all day.

As part of the Caring Cards Campaign, MedExpress has collaborated with six local artists to create a series of digital greeting cards (Caring Cards) that can be sent to loved ones via a dedicated website and in-center resources. The Caring Cards campaign will culminate with an art workshop at the Duquesne Boys & Girls Club and a donation of 330 art kits to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania to help further local students’ art education.
