Appreciation for giant eagle’s women leaders:
Amber Jackson, Development & Volunteer Coordinator, Bethlehem Haven
For nearly five years, once a month, the Women’s Business Resource Group has sponsored dinners for Bethlehem Haven, a shelter for homeless women and those at-risk of homelessness in Pittsburgh.
Giant Eagle Team Members come together to volunteer at the Cooking School at the Settlers Ridge Market District to cook 70 meals for women in need, which are delivered directly to the shelter.
The WBRG has also sponsored events in the past where they have collected supplies for the women at the shelter, specifically hygiene items like toothpaste, shampoo and deodorant.
“We give thanks to the Giant Eagle WBRG and the many kind Team Members who serve us monthly. We greatly value and appreciate your commitment to the women we serve at Bethlehem Haven. Your compassion and thoughtfulness does not go unnoticed. From the meals, activities and workshops, to the support you have provided, we truly appreciate the women of Giant Eagle. Bethlehem Haven looks forward to our continued partnership.”
