TO THE SEWICKLEY COMMUNITY CENTER
The Sewickley Community Center Juneteenth Festival is Going VIRTUAL
Given the widespread disruptions and growing concerns surrounding COVID-19, the committee along with the SCC Board of Directors made the difficult decision to do our part in helping to address those concerns by canceling this year’s Juneteenth Festival. For more details, see the Juneteenth Webpage.
The Pantry is open to all in the QVSD zip code!
The Sewickley Community Center Food Pantry will continue to stay open! Pantry hours are: Every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month from 9:00 - 11:00 am for a drive-by food pick-up.
We'll gratefully receive donations of non-perishable foods items on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month from 9 to 11 am (look for the cart in the parking lot). For more information about donating food to the Food Pantry, contact June Wormsley at email@example.com
The 1st, 3rd, and 5th Wednesdays will be for emergencies and by appointment only. We are intent upon trying to protect you and our volunteers as we share food resources. Please check our website before coming on any given Wednesday, as things can change.

NEED HELP AT THIS TIME?
Don't forget that the Union Aid Society has resources to help!
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Sewickley Community Center Pool will not open during this 2020 summer pool season. This was a difficult decision to make, but we feel it is the right decision for the safety of all ... the public, staff, and volunteers. We will miss you, but we look forward to reopening the pool in 2021! Have a safe summer!
THANK YOU ALL THAT GAVE TO THE
Give Big Pittsburgh COVID-19 DAY!!
This citywide fund-raising effort provided us $700 due to great supporters like you out there! Rather than waiting until the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (Giving Tuesday) to launch the fourth annual Give Big Pittsburgh campaign, Pittsburgh Magazine jumped in with the COVID-19 Response Campaign, an effort to assist in raising critical dollars — in the safest way possible — for nonprofits in Western Pennsylvania during this time of exceptional need. You can still give to the Sewickley Community Center by going HERE!
