Earlier this month, representatives from the Pirates and PNC Bank, including Pirates Chairman Bob Nutting and Lou Cestello, head of Regional Markets and regional president for PNC in Pittsburgh, contacted the local businesses to share the news and pledge support through the special program. “Support of the Pittsburgh community and those who need us the most, has been a primary focus for us throughout the past year, and we are looking at ways to continue these efforts even as we emerge from the pandemic,” said Pirates President Travis Williams. “Though a sense of normalcy seems to be returning to certain aspects of our lives, there are still struggles throughout our community. PNC has remained an incredible supporter, and we are proud to join with them in this initiative and continue to support our hometown’s growth and prosperity.”
