Hi, my name is Will. I am 12 years old, a student
at Pittsburgh Colfax and I like helping people.
Last year, I raised over $3,000 for victims of the tsunami in Japan and for a family in Tuscaloosa, Alabama who lost almost everything in the tornado that destroyed much of their town. After that, I realized there must be a need here in Pittsburgh. When I learned of East End Cooperative Ministry, I was surprised to see how many people were in need of help in my own neighborhood, so I started trying to figure out what I could do to make a difference. The things I have done are not big by themselves, but I believe if everyone does something, no matter how small, it can add up to something huge and make a difference.
In December, I contacted friends and asked them to donate new hats for EECM’s Men’s Homeless Shelter. We collected over 20 hats and some gloves.
but I am glad EECM is here to make it a little easier
for those who need help in our community.
