2020 Necessary Extra Campaign
Please help Inspired Hearts and Hands provide provide the “necessary extra” this holiday season for families in Allegheny and Butler counties that are most in need of our love and encouragement. When we started our effort in 2012, we set out to make sure that no one in our community went without a holiday meal. Since then, our mission and outreach has grown tremendously! What started as a mere 65 food-only baskets is expected to reach more than 600 families in our local community this year.
We believe that this year will be a defining moment. The need that we seek to address is the greatest we’ve faced in all our years. Because of COVID 19 and the direct ramifications of its impact, so many need our love and support more than ever. And yet, we expect that this will be by far our most challenging year for donations. Nonetheless, we are on a mission to provide for as many families as possible this year.
How Can You Help?
