Youth at Community Church

socks & snacks for the homeless

This Saturday 5/6 at 10:00 AM 

Meet in the church parking lot to head for the West Park area on the North Side (across from Allegheny Gen Hospital).  We're meeting other Youth from around Pgh to hand out Socks & Snacks to the homeless folks there.  This is an ongoing ministry, so there are people there who know how this works & have great experience guiding Youth as they interact.  I am going and so is my mother, who has years of experience in homeless ministry. 

If you are interested in attending, meet at church at 10:00 or meet us in the park at 10:30.  We'll be staying about 1 hour and will be back by about 12:00 noon.

SOCKS:  If able, please bring or drop off new basic generic tube socks (or something similar).  These are generally good for either men or women.

SNACKS:  Any individually packaged snack that does not require refrigeration would be appreciated.  Granola bars are NOT great because, frankly, not everyone has the teeth for them. But softer bars or other cracker type snacks or fruit cups, etc are fine.  These can also be things you portion out in baggies.

Thank you for considering this.  It is an opportunity to reach out to those in need, just a few miles from your front door.  A perspective we all need.

You are always welcome & encouraged to bring friends.  Please be sure to let them know that we are a welcoming place for the LGBT community and a safe space for real conversation.  We promise not to embarrass you or try to convert your friends;)     Thank you for all of your kindness and support for each other.
