Pittsburgh ranked among most caring cities in America
Pittsburghers care. And it's not just a slogan — like "Stronger Than Hate."
It's a community thing. There's something about being a Pittsburgher. Even living here for a short time, you are a Pittsburgher for life.
Want proof? Well, the city was just landed at No. 4 on a list of the Most Caring Cities in America.
Madison, Wisc., took the top spot, with New York City coming in second.

For its 2018 list, WalletHub looked at the country's 100 largest cities and compared their levels of caring -- through volunteerism, charity donations (cash, clothing, online), sheltered homeless persons, pet shelters and more than 30 other categories.
Pittsburgh, which moved up 5 spots from last year's ranking, fared much better than our close neighbors. Cleveland ranked 55, Cincinnati landed at 48, Philadelphia was 21, and Buffalo came in at 41.
