Hunger & Homelessness

Age Minimum (with Adult): 8+, Minimum Age:8+

Serve the Homeless at Outreached Arms!

Every Tuesday night, the First Presbyterian Church of Pittsburgh and Outreached Arms partner together to serve a meal to about 100+ of our homeless friends.  Our Tuesday night dinners are a lovely way to get involved in what we do here at First Presbyterian. It can also prove to be a wonderful way to meet new people in the area and build relationships with those who are hurting. Outreached Arms takes place every Tuesday night in the basement of the First Presbyterian Church.

If you are a first-time volunteer, you will arrive at the Oliver Avenue entrance (320 Oliver Ave) at 5:30 for a brief overview and orientation for the night. Returning volunteers can arrive closer to 6:00pm to re-run through the tasks for that evening and participate in a small and short prayer session before we begin. We will open the doors promptly to our guests at 6:30pm and dinner is served at 7:00pm. We usually clean up and finish up with the night around 8:30pm. Volunteers who come to volunteer with us can help with the cooking, set-up, serving of food and drinks, clean up and building relationships and talking to our guests.

Please dress casually and comfortably seeing as there will be alot of standing and moving around during your time spent volunteering with us. Outreached Arms is a wonderful program and we are excited for you to come and serve with us!

Additionally, please know that groups are limited to 15 people per group. So, if you plan to have a group larger than 12 volunteers - please email Louise McManus at lmcmanus@fpcp.org or sign up on the Outreached Arms website at http://www.outreachedarms.org/getinvolved/.
