Service Sunday: Amen to Action

Service Sunday: Amen to Action Pittsburgh
Amen to Action is an annual meal packing event that brings thousands together on Black Friday to give back to their community. Founded by Reid Carpenter in 2017, Amen to Action got its start when Reid gathered a network of local leaders who shared one goal: to connect people of all faiths, create a platform of spirit and harmony, and help make a difference for the city of Pittsburgh’s hungry and less fortunate by packing a million meals.

At its start in 2017, Amen to Action partnered with Meals of Hope and the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank to bring more than 3,000 volunteers together to pack over one million meals, that were then distributed through the Pittsburgh Food Bank to more than 400 area food pantries and school programs.

For the third consecutive year, Amen to Action will again host thousands of volunteers at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center on November 29 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. On a day that normally focuses on shopping, Amen to Action will break away from consumerism and instead shine a light on what really matters during the holiday season: giving back.

At last year’s event, Amen to Action volunteers packed 1,036,111 meals for Pittsburgh-area less fortunate, breaking the record for packing the most meals in one location (our own record from 2017). This year, Amen to Action hopes to break the record again!

How to Get Involved
Instead of spending the day shopping, Amen to Action invites you to come and truly make a difference in your community. To get involved, you can register to volunteer or donate on our website, our Facebook page, or our Twitter page.

I love these posts. I give back to the JDRF as I'm a diabetic and my boyfriend and I love supporting Saint Judes! Although some of these events are monetary only, I think that these service Sunday's are so wonderful and I'm glad you post about them!
