Members of the Moon Township-based Project Genesis service group today will volunteer time at the Holy Family Institute in Emsworth.
More than 60 volunteers, including members of St. Philips Church in Moon Township and Crossroads Church in North Fayette, will perform outreach today at the institute, a nonprofit that provides services to disadvantaged families and children in the Pittsburgh region.
Project Genesis member Rider Davidson, of Moon Township, said the group has worked with the Holy Family Institute for five years, and today will host its second-annual Easter celebration for members of the organization.
"It's just about us going down there, and taking some time to talk to the kids," Davidson said. "You have a lot of kids who are having a hard time, and around Easter, it's just about going there and giving some of your time."
Davidson said several Moon-area businesses have contributed to the event, including Hometown Pizza, Pizza Roma, and local locations for Starbucks and Pizza Hut.
"It started with Project Genesis and it's really grown," Davidson said. "It's really different churches coming together."
