MSA Donates to Engineers Without Borders-Pitt Chapter

As part of Mine Safety Appliances’s (MSA) 100 Ways of Giving program, the Engineers Without Borders Univeristy of Pittsburgh Student Chapter has received a donation from the MSA Charitable Foundation.

This charitable donation will be used to support our international project in Tapagem, Brazil. The goal of this project is to develop a sustainable water treatment system that will give the community access to clean drinking water. The community is comprised of  52 families -250 people- all of which obtain their water from the Tapajos River or a central community well.  With the donation, we will purchase supplies and support our travel team on their second assessment trip.

MSA is a company that provides personal protective equipment, detectors, and thermal imaging cameras to a plethora of industries. Their mission is for men and women to work in safety so that they, their families, and their communities may live in health throughout the world. MSA actively supports many philanthropic groups through their associates and the MSA Charitable Foundation. As a part of their 100 year anniversary, MSA has committed to donating $100K to 100 charities this year. Engineers Without Borders University of Pittsburgh Student Chapter is just one of the many recipients this year.
