Come join volunteers from churches throughout the Diocese for our second 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 am to 1 pm on Saturday, March 26. Last December we had a most rewarding and enjoyable 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.

If you would like to volunteer for this rewarding Lenten activity sponsored by the Social Justice and Outreach Committee, contact Jerry Stephenson ( or 412-367-1032) by March 18. 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 expect the 40 available slots to be reserved quickly and prefer to limit the number of volunteers from any one church to 10 for now.
