The Child Life Department at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC tries to offset this by providing developmental, educational, social and emotional support to children of all ages who stay there.

The Tri-Star Auto Group had become aware of this very special service for the children through their deep commitment and work with the United Way.

The goal of our philanthropy and employee volunteer efforts is to make a difference. We hope these 13 Dell Streak Computer Tablets provide some diversion and enjoyment to the young patients at Children's Hospital".
