‘Celebrate The South Hills With SHIM’
South Hills Interfaith Movement (SHIM) has hosted the annual fundraising event, ‘Celebrate the South Hills with SHIM’, for ten years, honoring individuals in the South Hills community who share SHIM’s values of neighbors helping neighbors. While the event traditionally consisted of a dinner program and silent auction, it became a virtual event for two years through the height of the COVID pandemic, allowing attendees to get a behind the scenes glimpse at SHIM’s programs and the people it helps.
This year, SHIM is bringing it back into the community and welcoming hundreds of families, community leaders, businesses, and supporters to our Bethel Park location for a day of volunteering, games, food, tours of SHIM food pantry, cultural dance, and music. The event is an opportunity to learn about SHIM, the need in the community, and to celebrate the collective spirit of the South Hills. It will also be a celebration of SHIM and the people from all backgrounds who call the South Hills their home. Family Deli and Bethel Bakery will be onsite with food available for purchase.
The event directly supports the 7,500 people who rely on SHIM annually for food, clothing, employment support, parenting classes, youth programs, and much more. Sponsors of the event include, Highmark Wholecare, UPMC & UPMC Health Plan, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield & Allegheny Health Network, CONSOL Cares Foundation, Brentwood Bank, St. Clair Health, Eat’n Park Hospitality Group, Dollar Bank, Julia James Salon and PNC Financial Services Group.
