Students and families come to distribution locations for supplies to prepare for the school year
South Hills Interfaith Movement's Back-to-School event distributed school supplies and backpacks to a record-breaking number of students this year! After three days of drive-thru distributions, more than 1,200 students received backpacks and school supplies.

The back-to-school events were held on three different days during August at three different south hills locations. Events were held on August 10 at Pleasant Hills Presbyterian Church, August 13 at Whitehall Presbyterian Church, and August 14 at SHIM Center in Bethel Park.
Due to the on-going impact of COVID-19 on families, the demand for supplies was so great that an order for 30 more backpacks was placed to make sure every student who needed a backpack received one. SHIM would like to extend a special thank you to Centimark Corporation for their donation to support local students.
