Coronavirus (Covid-19) Response

How we are helping

The Compassion Network is made up of local churches in the 15068 zip code.   During this pandemic, our outreach goals remain the same.  We want to meet the needs of those in our community, especially in times of crisis.  Currently, the biggest need we are seeing right now is to provide food.  We are meeting that need in a couple of different ways:

  1. Our backpack program that was previously getting weekend food for school aged kids has been expanded.  We are now putting together bags that contain snacks and other food items designed to last up to one week   We are receiving and still accepting food donations, as this need will not go away any time soon!  We have been blessed with folks who have made personal donations, and also through groups who have given in larger quantities.  Know that all food donations will be put to the best use possible, so that we can keep kids and families from being hungry during this challenging time.
  2. We are also providing boxes of perishable and non-perishable food items to people and families who need them as well.  We are delivering to them on a regular basis, as this need continues to grow.
  3. Meal preparation is also being done on a more limited basis.  This involves providing cooked meals to families in need.  We currently have several families willing to provide the food for the meals, and to cook the meals.  Since many are concerned about being in contact with others at this time, we also have people willing to deliver meals safely, if needed.

If you want to volunteer in any capacity, or if you are in need right now, please contact us:
