“Stuffed With Love” provides free, hot, and delicious traditional Thanksgiving Day meals to people who really need them. On Thanksgiving morning, Pittsburgh Police Officers and volunteers deliver these much needed meals to those who apply. Last year–with the support of the Rotary Club of Bethel-St. Clair–the program served over 3,000 hot Thanksgiving Day Dinners to needy Pittsburgh families and seniors.

You can be part of this annual effort to brighten Thanksgiving for neighbors across the city. Volunteers are needed to prepare food to be packaged for delivery on November 20, 23, 24 and 25 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Holy Assumption of Mary Church, 105 S. 19th Street. If you can help, please call Heather Dieckmann at 412-310-1308 to schedule your time.

If you don’t have the time to volunteer, you can still help. The program needs funds, turkey and other food. Monetary donations can be sent to United American Savings Bank, 1812 E Carson St. Pittsburgh, PA 15203, ATTN: Heather Dieckmann. Please make checks out to The Rotary Club of Bethel-St Clair and write “Get Stuffed With Love” in the memo line.

Stuffed With Love is a partnership between the Rotary Club of Bethel-St. Clair and the Bureau of Police in service to the residents of the City of Pittsburgh.
