Come join volunteers from churches throughout the Diocese for a Lenten workday at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.  Once again we will be working in the Repack Center at GPCFB's main Duquesne warehouse facility (1 North Linden St, Duquesne, PA 15110) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 10.  

On our previous visits we’ve enjoyed a most rewarding time repacking about a ton of cereal.  The exact project will depend on their inventory at the time.

GPCFB serves as a central repository for over 350 local food pantries and distribution centers across 11 counties in southwestern Pennsylvania.  Because it works with such large volumes in its certified green facility, GPCFB's operations are efficient, economical and impressive.

The Social Justice and Outreach Committee is sponsoring this event to highlight the ongoing hunger needs in our area.

If you would like to volunteer for this rewarding Lenten activity, contact Jerry Stephenson at jjmestephenson@verizon.net or 412 367-1032 by March 5.  

We’ll need your name, address, phone and church for the roster sheet. Volunteers must be 12 years of age or older and be able to stand for 2 or more consecutive hours.  We’re limited to 30 volunteer slots, which will be filled on a first-come basis.  Make your reservation soon!
