Confluence donates 100 Thanksgiving turkeys to Northside-area individuals and families
November 18, 2013
Pittsburgh-based software firm Confluence is providing Thanksgiving turkeys to 100 area families as part of its Confluence Cares community outreach and service program. Confluence employees and Chief Operating Officer Skip Smith will staff the Northside Common Ministries Food Pantry and give away Giant Eagle gift cards for turkeys on Tuesday, Nov. 19, from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
"We are proud Pittsburgh is our home, and I am humbled by our employees' commitment to serving our community," Smith said. "At this time of Thanksgiving, we pause to give thanks for what we have, and we take time out of our lives to pay forward the kindnesses we have received."
Confluence was founded in 1991 and is headquartered in Pittsburgh with offices in San Francisco, London and Luxembourg.

The turkey drive is being conducted as part of Confluence Cares, an employee-driven grassroots service program. In 2013, employees gave back through toy and food drives, financial donations and volunteer time with organizations including the American Diabetes Association, North Hills Outreach, American Cancer Society, Education Partnership and Gilda's Club.
Northside Common Ministries is a non-sectarian collaboration of 30 churches working together to provide food and shelter to homeless people in the community. Its community food pantry provides a week's worth of food every month to over 950 Northside individuals and families.
