This is absolutely my favorite nonprofit group. They provide food and clothing etc. to low income families in need that have long term and short term challenges. The clothes that I donate are hung up in an area where those in need are able to come and shop off of the racks for "FREE"! I have held food drives and made financial donations as well. The amount of people that they are able to help support in time of need is amazing and so are their volunteers! They are truly angels from heaven there to help others.

South Hills Interfaith Ministries (SHIM) provides services to low income families in the South Hills of Pittsburgh through a food and clothing bank and assistance in learning to budget money and in applying for energy assistance. They also have a center in an apartment complex which houses many, many refugee families. SHIM does so much for so many and uses their money so wisely! This year, they are converting some of their lawn into a garden to supplement the food bank with fresh vegetables. What a great use of resources!

Why did you make your donation at this time?

All nonprofits are suffering from the recession - nonprofits that serve the poor are doubly impacted - less money is available and more people need their services.

What would you tell others about this organization?

You can donate goods, services or time to this organization - all help is needed and appreciated and you are helping your neighbors. You can also trust that your money will be well spent.

I first came to know South Hills Interfaith Ministries through my church's participation in one of their food drives, but over the years I've lived in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, I've become more involved and now serve on their board. SHIM serves the suburban poor in countless ways and answers ever increasing needs: a food and clothing bank, run by volunteers who respect the dignity of our cllients; a fall drive to collect items for school, enabling kids to start the school year with new backpacks and supplies; advice about money management and energy assistence; a wonderful intergenerational, multicultural Thanksgiving dinner for clients; a summer day camp that gives kids who might otherwise be home alone weeks full of a variety of appropriate outside activities.
To support all of their many services, SHIM calls upon all of the various religious denominations in the South Hills, keeping them informed and engaging their members are both financial donors and as volunteers.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attending events sponsored by SHIM, speaking to SHIM's staff and volunteers and contributing to their efforts with time, talent and financial support.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

work toward engaging more young people as volunteers through their various church/synagogue affilliations and continue SHIM's efforts toward increased visibility.
