Art Show Fundraiser Slated on January 14

By  Charlotte Hopkins

Frank Mance, Marilyn Mance, Mark Rickard, and Frank Dicecco represent the Homeless Ministry and are continuing their endeavors to assist the homeless, up to and including the days they obtain a secure living place.
While gathering hats and gloves for the 100 bags, Jill Eckley and Pastor Tim Green shared Eckley’s plans for her art show to be held at the John Hermann Art Museum.
Sandra Santillo prepared shampoo and personal care items for the bags.
Everyone should have cookies for Christmas! Paul Kirkland, Aubrey Franks, and Skylar Reynolds prepare bags of baked goods to be included.

The Homeless Ministry, based out of Calvary Chapel South Pittsburgh (CCSP), in West Elizabeth collected donations to fill 100 bags to aid the homeless. They included personal care items, hoodies, blankets, and gloves. One of the donating families crocheted 100 cozies with a bar of soap inside each one. To celebrate Christmas with the homeless, inside each bag was a smaller bag of chocolates and snacks, and another with cookies.  

Volunteer, Jill Eckley, will be expanding their endeavors to assist the homeless by hosting an art show to raise proceeds for the people they help. The show will be held on Saturday, January 14, from 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm at the John Hermann Art Museum (318 Lincoln Avenue Bellevue).

Frank and Marilyn Mance started the Homeless Ministry in 2009, alongside their daughter, Kelly Witt. Mark Rickard, another volunteer for the Homeless Ministry expressed that he and others were led to participate as servants. They have grown to include servants from West Elizabeth, Mount Lebanon, Bridgeville, Pleasant Hills, Bethel Park, and Greentree. The Homeless Ministry is funded solely through donations.  “God runs the ministry, and we just serve. Funding comes from generous donations and always at the right time,” stated Rickard.
