COVID-19 is bigger than us, but God is bigger than COVID-19.
Together we can use this time to do some good!
In the last month, everyone in the nation has had to adjust their lives to fit the mold of the global pandemic we are facing. All students in Pittsburgh are being educated while in their homes, many businesses have been forced to temporarily close, and "social distancing" has become a familiar phrase. Everyone in the world is facing hardship today, and many have been left feeling helpless. We have been washing our hands and staying inside, but how can we make a positive impact in our community?
The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank has taken steps to safely and effectively distribute food to those in need in the midst of COVID-19. They have implemented a no-touch drive-up emergency food distribution process which served over 5,000 vehicles with more than 250,000 pounds of food during their first four distributions. On Good Friday, 1,300 people were served, but they had to turn many away due to a lack of food. At this time, the Food Bank is not accepting food drive donations due to health precautions. Monetary donations allow the Food Bank to purchase food in large quantities directly from manufacturers, reduce physical contact and quickly re-distribute to those in need. $1 donated to the Food Bank can provide enough food for up to 5 meals for our community.
There is going to be so much good that comes from these hard times. Together let's be a part of the good that can happen right now in Pittsburgh :)
