Local Charities Providing Meals To Pittsburgh Families During Thanksgiving Week – CBS Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Local charitable organizations across the Pittsburgh area will be providing Thanksgiving meals to thousands of residents in the next week while balancing the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.

Beginning on Monday, Light of Life Rescue Mission will package over 1,800 Thanksgiving dinner boxes for families in need on the North Side.

After that, on Thanksgiving Day, Light of Life will provide 1,000 meals to those in need along with handing out winter hats, gloves, scarves, and hygiene kits.

Light of Life Director of Development Doug Smith ensures all events can take place safely during their busiest week of the year.

“Obviously, we’ve had to make a lot of changes all throughout the year,” Smith said. “We were prepared very early.”

Light of Life Rescue Mission has remained open throughout the pandemic. Their Thanksgiving outreach typically packs their Northside building.

Smith says that won’t be the case this year, but they still plan to serve as many people as needed.

Meals will either be delivered, served to-go, or inside a heated tent outside the building. Everyone, including volunteers, must have masks on and keep their distance.
