Lisa Cannon resides in Greensburg and began to volunteer at Feeding the Spirit just as the weekly dinners were starting to get up and running. She knew two of the founders of FTS and just showed up one night to help and became a weekly regular. Lisa has come to know many of the guests and considers them her friends and can often be found sitting and chatting with many of them at their tables every Thursday evening. "There is a great atmosphere that I think is quite uplifting", Lisa states. She also loves spending time with the other volunteers. When Lisa is not volunteering at Feeding the Spirit, she works for the Bureau of Disability Determination and spends her free time working out at the Aerobic Center, socializing with friends, reading and traveling. Lisa loves her volunteer work at Feeding the Spirit and "she really enjoys being a part of something that is bigger than myself and in its own way changes our little corner of the world for the better!"
Hats, Scarves & Gloves with Love
November 13th, 2016
Chances are if you were in Greensburg in November of 2016 when the chill of winter was upon us, you may have seen bags filled with bright colored garments hanging throughout the city in such places as Courthouse Square, St. Clair Park and outside of area churches. Following in the footsteps of winterwear drives in larger metropolitan areas, Feeding the Spirit assembled over 1500 bags complete with hats, scarves and gloves and distributed them in areas where those in need tend to flock.
Hats, Scarves & Gloves with Love is an annual event!
We will be accepting donations of winter hats, scarves, gloves and socks year round at 414 South Maple Ave on weekdays from 9a-5p. Please drop off in entranceway or on porch (if building is closed).
It would be even more helpful if you can put sets in small plastic bags (ziplock type) with one pair of gloves, a scarf, and a hat (and optional pair of socks, although not necessary) and label each bag by Men, Women, or Child.
HELP BUILD AWARENESS AND HELP THE HOMELESS IN YOUR OWN COMMUNITY!
