We been overwhelmed with the outpouring of support surrounding the recent press about our fundraising/turkey shortage.
If you would like to help, monetary donations are always best. For every $1 donated, we can purchase $5 worth of retail food. If you would like to donate turkeys, we are asking they be between 12-14 lbs, any brand, and that they be dropped off at our Delmont warehouse by the Thursday before Thanksgiving (Nov 20). This way, we can ensure they make it to the table of a hungry family for the Holiday. Of course we will accept donations of turkey at any time after that, but we cannot guarantee a family will receive it by Thanksgiving.
If you would like to donate monetarily, you can do so here. Thank you again for the outpouring of support.

PittsburghPirates CARE-a-van Food Drive
This year, we are proud to announce, in partnership with the West Hempfield Middle School, the Pirates CARE-a-van will be in Westmoreland County on Wednesday, December 10, 2014 at the West Hempfield Middle School. Principal Aaron Steinly contacted the Westmoreland County Food Bank’s Community Outreach Coordinator, Clarissa Amond, recently to let the Food Bank know of the activities planned for the day. The event will conclude with loading donated food from the students into the Food Bank trucks. “I was elated when I received the call,” stated Ms. Amond. “We are all Pirates fans here at the Food Bank and are very proud that they chose us to be a benefactor of their goodwill.”
