Police will deliver free Thanksgiving dinners again
November 7, 2017
Rotary Clubs of Bethel-St. Clair and Northern Allegheny along with Holy Assumption of St. Mary Orthodox Church are partnering again this year to cook and package traditional Thanksgiving meals.
The meals will be delivered by Pittsburgh Police officers on Thanksgiving Day, November 23. Over the past 14 years, this event has gone from feeding 250 people who are homeless, shut-in, disabled, and in need; to feeding over 3,500 people and numbers keep growing.
The entire city of Pittsburgh is again being offered this service.
Organizers expect to feed approximately 4,000 residents this year, but need help. There are a few ways area residents can assist in this project:
