How Amen to Action got its start
In 2020, it was not possible for people to gather in large groups so the Amen to Action (and Pittsburgh Leadership Foundation) family found another way. Over $170,000 was donated which enabled the distribution of over 850,000 meals during a year when help was very much needed.
In 2021, Amen to Action will be adopting a new approach with the goal of once again providing at least one million meals for our neighbors in our city. Instead of thousands gathering in one location, hundreds will gather in one of approximately 10 locations across the city. In each location, at least 100,000 meals will be packed!
There is power in our commitment to unity.
There is power in our commitment to service.
Amen to Action is all about both!
