THE STORY:

 

For the past 30 years, Northside Common Ministries has been serving and meeting the increasing needs of homeless men and food insecure individuals and families of Pittsburgh’s North side.  NCM is a non-sectarian, non-profit, community based organization that was established by the collaboration of 30 local churches in 1982.

NCM is an affiliate unit of Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania and operates the Pleasant Valley Emergency Shelter for men who are homeless, the Northside Community Food Pantry, and a Permanent Housing Program for men with disabilities.

NCM’s Pleasant Valley Emergency Shelter accommodates the needs of 25 homeless men. The Shelter provides residents with a safe environment with secure sleeping quarters, a location to wash their clothing, hot showers, and a warm meal.

Each month, NCM’s Community Food Pantryprovides a week’s worth of food for nearly 1000 food insecure individuals and families of Pittsburgh’s North side. Among local food pantries, it is the largest single client of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

Our work is supported and facilitated by hundreds of volunteers, and our mission is made possible by people like you!

Please help support our runners and their mission to fight against hunger and homelessness. You can make a donation in support of a particular runner or you can make a general donation in support of the entire NCM Justice League. Here is a look at how your contributions help fight against hunger and homelessness:

·         $25 buys 3 cases of canned goods for our food pantry to distribute to the nearly 1000 individuals and families we serve each month.

·         $50 provides supplies needed for one GED prep student to participate in our onsite GED program.

·         $100 purchases 400 dozen eggs, which amounts to 2400 omelets for 2400 hungry children.

·         $250 provides 5 pairs of work boots for 5 homeless men to work in.

·         $500 buys laundry detergent utilized in our facility by the homeless residents of the shelter and homeless individuals that sleep on the streets.

$1000 helps buy the sheets and towels needed in our 25 bed shelter for one year.
