PITTSBURGH (PRWEB) May 21, 2020
MyWay Mobile Storage of Pittsburgh will be joining the REALTORS® Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh (RAMP) in their Community Service Committee’s Daily Bread event. The May 21st event is focused on making and serving lunch to those experiencing food insecurities because of homelessness or under-employment. The food is served out of the kitchen at the New Hope Methodist Church on the North Side. RAMP community service committee volunteers will purchase the menu items, prepare the food, and serve a delicious meal.
“We always really loved to get out in the community and give back. Volunteering at the Daily Bread program (formally known as the Northside Congregate Feeding Program) is a terrific way to do that,” said Michelle Schocker, an agent with Berkshire Hathaway. “It will be different this year with carry-out only and social distancing because of coronavirus,” Schocker continued, “but now more than ever we need to help our neighbors.”
Ed Sickmund, MyWay Mobile Storage of Pittsburgh Market Owner and RAMP Affiliate member said, “Helping those who may be experiencing food insecurity is even more important during this coronavirus crisis. They are our neighbors.” Sickmund continued, “I’m happy to set up the big grill and cook some burgers and kielbasa for them.”
“The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank estimates that before the stay at home orders and business closures more than 14 percent of our community experienced food insecurity,” commented Stacey Reis, a RAMP Affiliate member with Home Warranty America. She continued, “Those numbers are much higher now. And we are just happy to be able to help.”
Michelle Senko, a PPM Realty agent added, “The Daily Bread program does a terrific job, together with other feeding programs on the Northside, making sure hot meals are available every day of the week. They’ve made the necessary adjustments—carry-out only and social distancing in the kitchen and for food pick-up—to keep everyone safe.”
Emily Platts, a Howard Hanna agent, noted, “Food insecurity, homelessness, and under-employment have been challenges facing our neighbors all year, every year. My Howard Hanna colleague, Preston Moore, and I are happy to do our small part.”
Maria Stinger, a RAMP Affiliate member with Keystone Building Inspections, pointed out that, “Anyone interested in volunteering for the Daily Bread program can sign up online. The program serves meals three times per week, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:30 a.m. and Sundays at 4:00 p.m. They have many different volunteer jobs—from handing out food to helping to sanitize surfaces to driving leftovers to other organizations.”
