In the spirit of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, a group of 10 volunteers from the Southside and Shadyside Apple stores worked to assemble over 150 Winter Warm-up Kits for the CHS Street Outreach team Tuesday night.
CHS is participating in Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week, an annual nation-wide campaign where people come together to draw attention to the problems of hunger and homelessness. Check out what we're doing below, and make sure to follow our efforts on social media through #HungryandHomelessPGH !
As Winter approaches, we are in great need of items for folks who live on the streets. Now and throughout the cold weather months, we are collecting donations of new items at our main office at 2525 Liberty Avenue in the Strip District.
