19th Annual Garbage Bag Gala benefiting The Salvation Army Family Caring Center presented by FedEx Ground ∙ Thursday, October 8, 2020 ∙ 6:30-9:00 PM ∙ Sheraton Pittsburgh - Station Square ∙ Garbage Bag Couture Fashion Show ∙ Hors d'oeuvres ∙ Silent Auction
It is with deep sadness that we announce the cancellation of this year’s Garbage Bag Gala to benefit The Salvation Army Family Caring Center presented by FedEx Ground (scheduled for October 8).
With the recent surge in COVID-19 cases and restrictions on large group gatherings, it’s even more unlikely that we would be able to hold an in-person event come October. We feel this course of action puts the safety of our supporters first.
With the Garbage Bag Gala cancelled, the Family Caring Center needs your support more than ever. The FCC has been fully operational during the COVID-19 pandemic, modifying daily practices for the safety of residents and staff, such as limiting the number of families in the dining room and requiring masks in common areas in the facility.

Thank you to our generous event sponsors who are continuing to support the Family Caring Center… because there is no quarantine from homelessness.
