Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank
The Thanksgiving holiday season is more than cooking, recipes and football games. There are also charity walks and runs, parades and celebrating the season with family and friends. Opportunities to volunteer at food banks, ministries and homeless shelters make the holidays special, and the diverse Pittsburgh region complements the Thanksgiving celebrations and neighborhood customs perfectly. These are the best ways for families to celebrate the season this year.
