Manhole Cover Cork Trivet-Pittsburgh

20.00

Pennsylvania’s second city, Pittsburgh was founded in 1794 at the juncture of three rivers, the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio. The Steel City has 446 bridges and was the cauldron of metal work in the United States for over a century. Pittsburgh’s ethnic diversity and emphasis on higher education has positioned the city well for the future. The Duquesne Light Company manhole cover features radiating, stepped bolts of light; a decent metaphor for the city’s tech savvy.

The synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh where 11 people lost their lives is the result of anti-Semitism and ignorance. The shooter specifically denounced HIAS, which has helped to resettle refugees in the US for over 130 years, including my own family members. For every purchase through November 27, 2018 that includes a Pittsburgh trivet, we’ll donate 20% of the total proceeds to HIAS. The donation will be noted via your provided email.
