Miryam's House Produce Pickup

Dear Friends,

               There are not too many mission projects that last continuously for 20 years, but Bower Hill's involvement with and ministry to the homeless women at Miryam's House has done just that. The best I can tell, it has probably been a few years longer. Each and every Sunday, some member of our church picks up produce provided by the Market District Giant Eagle at Village Square in Bethel Park/Upper St. Clair and takes it to Miryam’s located on Fifth Ave., downtown, near Consol Center. We need more volunteers, someone to take the fifth Sunday each month (usually five times each year), and more people to be substitutes when one of the "regulars" can't do it. It is not difficult, requires about two hours on a Sunday, an SUV, station wagon or pick-up truck, and some lifting is involved.

               Especially at this time of the year, we give thanks for our families and friends; we are acutely aware of many ways that God has blessed us. Each of us, in our own way, wants to have a positive impact on our community, to make a difference. If you agree, I have just the opportunity you may have been looking for. Please call me at  412-833-7753 and I'll be happy to answer any questions that you might have. Have a great 2013.

                                             Faithfully,

                                             Dave Hicks
