Google Serves at EECM

 

Thank you Google for sending us your Googlers to volunteer with us at EECM in our Food Pantry and Community Kitchen! GoogleServe, which is Google’s month long campaign during which Googlers volunteer in their community, spent the day at EECM with EECM’s Volunteer Coordinator Tracy Hudson and EECM’s Chef Nicole Baverso for a day of service.

“I love having the opportunity to walk down the street from Bakery Square to volunteer for an organization that is such a force of good,” said Jonathan Harbuck, a software engineer for Google.

“We are delighted to have Google here at EECM to support our vital volunteer efforts for our Community Nutrition Services Program which serves Pittsburgh and the many who are in need of a hot meal and good nutrition,” said Carole Bailey, EECM’s President and CEO.

Pittsburgh, PA – EECM’s CEO & President Carole Bailey along with EECM’s Sewing Program Manager Hannah Moon joined in the June 6th celebration of the official opening and ribbon cutting ceremony of the TRYP BY WYNDHAM located in the former Washington Education Center in Lawrenceville.

The TRYP BY WYNDHAM is Pittsburgh’s first art hotel and features art by over 30 local artists. EECM is proud to be a featured artist as it created the aprons for the hotel’s culinary staff. Amongst the programs and services that EECM provides, EECM helps people who have barriers to employment by providing them with training in the textile industry through its sewing program. Geoff Ballotti, President & CEO of WYNDHAM Hotels and Resorts, and Anthony Emanuelo, VP of TRYP Brand and International Operations, flew in for this special event and delivered remarks to invited guests, artists and the press. “The contributions that the new TRYP BY WYNDHAM brings to Lawrenceville and our great City of Pittsburgh are highly significant. EECM is delighted to be a part of this exciting destination that is reflective of Pittsburgh’s history, art and people,” said Carole Bailey, EECM’s President & CEO.
