The Pittsburgh Project is excited to be organizing food this year for Allegheny County's Winter Shelter. The shelter is run by Pittsburgh Mercy's Operation Safety Net in conjunction with Allegheny County Department of Human Services, and will be operating November 15th, 2019 through March 15th, 2020. The Pittsburgh Project will be organizing volunteers to both cook and serve meals for the 120 days the shelter is open starting on November 25th.
There are many ways to get involved in this year's Winter Weather Shelter. Whether you would like to cook a meal, volunteer to serve a meal, or do both, we would love to have you join us in serving those experiencing homelessness this winter.
