CONGREGATE FEEDING PROGRAM - Daily Bread
On the first Tuesday of each month, the McKnight Church supplies a hot meal to those in need on the North Side of Pittsburgh through "Daily Bread" (formerly called the Congregate Feeding Program) of the United Methodist Church Union. A group of volunteers travels from McKnight to the New Hope United Methodist Church building to prepare and serve the meals. Generally the group leaves McKnight at 10 am and returns by 1:30 pm. Contact Bob Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-369-5117) if you are interested in volunteering.
Clothing in high demand are underwear, socks, T-Shirts, and shoes and seasonal items. Used clothing is acceptable. Toothbrushes, toothpaste and deodorant are also appreciated. Please bring your donations to the church and indicate for NSFP or Bob Brown. Innovative ways to contribute are collecting free samples of toothbrushes and toothpaste from your Dentist (this applies to Friday Nightz Rock also). Collecting soap and shampoo from motels/hotels while on vacation and/or business trips,) as well as collecting usable clothing from rummage sales is also another means.
The Church Union has a new website http://www.umchurchunionpgh.org.
