Charity Alive’s Amelia Kolb joined Sister Luke, Sister Nancy and AmeriCorps volunteer Julia Gerwe to plant three trees on the Nazareth campus. They planted a Burr Oak, White Oak, and Chinquapin Oak. It was hard work, but a great time was had by all they said. The trees are dedicated in honor of Charity Alive for Earth and Arbor Day in the hope they will endure for generations as a testament to the group’s love for Nazareth!
The Pittsburgh Community of Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, along with the residents of Vincentian Villa and Terrace, participated in a food drive to honor St Vincent’s words “…to serve the poor is to go to God.” Over 40 bags filled to the brim were delivered to North Hills Community Outreach Food Bank along with a check for $325 to continue their service to the poor.
