GIVING BACK AND SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY
Faith in Action provides the elderly with drivers to help them remain independent and a vital part of their community by providing rides to doctor appointments and medical treatments, the grocery store and access to conduct their personal affairs.
Annually, Faith in Action provides approximately 1,400 rides to elderly citizens in the Sewickley Valley through a network of volunteer drivers. Faith in Action began in 2002 as a community outreach program at the Sewickley Valley YMCA, and now is a program jointly supported through a partnership between the Y and Heritage Valley Health System.
If you’d like to make a gift to Faith in Action or volunteer, please contact the Heather Ochman at the YMCA at 412-741-9622 x135 or firstname.lastname@example.org; or the Heritage Valley Sewickley Foundation at email@example.com or 412-749-7050.
