Purposeful Acts Of Kindness This Holiday Season

Sarah Schneider
90.5 WESA

Today Essential Pittsburgh looks at the work being done to help the neediest at this time of year. From food pantries to the Salvation Army we'll speak with those who exemplify the spirit of giving. No state budget is affecting food banks at this time of year when the need for donations increases. Joining us to discuss how the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank is dealing with  the challenge is food bank CEO Lisa Scales. Also taking part in the discussion is Jay Poliziani, executive director of Northside Common Ministries which runs a food bank which does not receive government funding.
