September Support for the Food Pantry

Soap Sacks Surprise! 

At JFCS Squirrel Hill Food Pantry, every little act of kindness can go a long way in helping individuals and families facing challenging circumstances. Donations, like the knitted soap sacks provided by S.A.C.K (Supporting A Community with Kindness), not only meet basic needs but also offer comfort and dignity to those who might need them. We want to give them a big shoutout and that these small gestures create a ripple effect of positivity and compassion throughout our community.

If you are interested in learning more about how to help out in this way, visit S.A.C.K’s page at www.facebook.com/soapsack.
