VOLUNTEER DRIVERS NEEDED!!
Every day in our community there are Older Adults who have to make the hard choice between food and basic necessities. If you or your spouse are 60 years of age or older and are home bound, you could be eligible for a nutritious meal.
Our agency, Blueprints, has a big need for Home Delivered Meal volunteers in the Carmichaels area. We need volunteers to deliver a smile and a nutritious Home Delivered Meal to senior citizens in your area. Commitments are flexible. This is great to do with a friend or spouse. (If volunteers are 55+, we have a program where we can offer mileage reimbursements as well.) Meals are picked up at the Carmichaels Senior Center. To volunteer your time, please call 724-852-2893 or 1-877-814-0788.

A nominal Catholic with little catechesis, she left the Church, being drawn to Evangelical Christians. She returned to Catholicism after she was challenged to learn about the Catholic faith and Scripture. She struggled with anorexia but then encountered the Theology of the Body which redeemed her relationship with food and helped her rediscover the Eucharist. She waited to find her husband and then waited through an adoption process she called beautiful and terrifying. Emily is a Catholic writer, book author, blogger, and speaker. Emily’s husband is Chris Chapman who works for the Diocese of Pittsburgh, Secretariat for Leadership Development and Evangelization.
To register, call Pam, 412-461-

AMEN TO ACTION ~ Nov. 23 ~ VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
On the day after Thanksgiving, thousands are expected at David L. Lawrence Convention Center to sing, pray, celebrate and pack over one million meals for the hungry. This is the second annual “Amen to Action” event which inspired over 3,000 volunteers in November 2017 to pack 1,014,366 meals for their Pittsburgh community. Meals were packed using a system developed by the Meals of Hope organization then delivered to those in need through the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. The event sold out and broke records for packing the most meals in one day in a single location.
“Amen to Action” was founded by a group of Pittsburgh clergy and lay leaders with the shared vision: “to connect people of all faiths, creating a platform of harmony and amassing spiritual capital more potent than all the coal in the hills and steel in the mills—and in so doing, lead Pittsburgh to become a spiritual power plant for the rest of the world.” The Amen to Action team invites the community of Pittsburgh to register and/or donate to the 2nd annual “Amen to Action” event taking place on Friday, November 23rd at David L. Lawrence Convention Center. For more details visit https://www.amentoaction.org.
