issues on the point - august

This edition of issues on the point features segments with Pennsylvania Treasurer Joe Torsella, the Central Blood Bank and the Women's Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh.

Students in the Keystone State head back to school in the coming weeks. With Pennsylvania ranking second worst in the nation when it comes to student loan debt, Pennsylvania Treasurer Joe Torsella shares his thoughts on how the cost of higher education affects the Commonwealth. (Video above.)

Then, we explain why if you're able, the Central Blood Bank needs your help now more than ever.

Finally, how can you help the Women's Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh shelter thousands of women from the storm of violence.
