said Pamela Abdalla, a member of both The Salvation Army’s Greater
Pittsburgh and National Advisory Boards.
Pittsburgh-area Yoginis, Debra Acri, LeighAnn Handel
and Jen Stratakis were instrumental to the planning process. “Pamela is
passionate about The Salvation Army and especially its Family Caring
Center,” said Stratakis. “Debra, LeighAnn and I thought the event
was a perfect fit for a very worthwhile cause.”
The Salvation Army’s Family Caring Center is the only program of
its kind in the Greater Pittsburgh area that gives shelter to the entire
family, including married couples and single fathers or mothers with children.
Families in need will find a warm and friendly environment that provides a firm
foundation while they search for housing and employment. A few of the many
services found at this haven include spiritual support services, counseling,
nutritious meals, clean safe shelter, health care and support services to
adults and children. Residents are even offered weekly yoga classes. To
further minimize stress, every effort is made to keep children in their school
Tickets for “108 Salutations for Salvation . . . Giving With
Gratitude” are still available for $40. RSVP to Pamela Abdalla
412 -737- 2516 or email@example.com by June 1st. We expect a sellout
so I encourage everyone to buy their tickets as soon as possible,” said
Abdalla. All proceeds go directly to caring for the homeless children and
families at The Salvation Army’s Family Caring Center.
