We build Pittsburgh’s creative infrastructure by operating a magical  SHOP where artists, teachers, and everyone else can get materials they need for their projects, and by offering hands-on creative PROGRAMS, both at our center and around the region.

Donation Policy: 

We can accept a single box of donations any day of the week between 11:30 AM-5:30 PM. Please be aware that we cannot accommodate walk-in donations of more than one box. Please do not leave donations outside our door.

If you have more than one box of donations you’ll need to make an appointment so we can prepare for your donation. The easiest way to make an appointment is to fill out our online form at www.pccr.org/donate or give us a call at 412.437.0100.
