A Water Step Chlorine Kit was donated to the sisters by Frank Diebold, uncle of Lauren Sprigg who volunteered in Belize with the sisters for 7 weeks. Lauren was able to teach those at SCN Center Belize how to make their own chlorine and also how to use the kit to purify water. The purifier kit cost about $400. This piece of equipment will help the Sisters to continue improving the environment.
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.
