Hebron United Presbyterian Church will host “A Women's Beyond Day... Gathering, Giving and Serving” on May 11, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the fellowship hall at the church, located at 10460 Frankstown Road.
The group will be collecting supplies including underwear and feminine sanitary pads to send for distribution to women in Haiti. Items will be collected at the entrance of both church buildings through May 12.
The “serving” portion of the day will consist of preparing cookie trays for first responders in Penn Hills. Participants are asked to bring their favorite cookie dough or ingredients for a favorite cookie recipe. Trays will be delivered to local fire companies, the police station and EMS. Other activities will include:
• Making pillowcasess for distribution at a local women's shelter.
• Making blankets for distribution to the homeless.
• Soliciting donations for the Presbyterian Women's Synod 2013 Mission Project, which will be used by Haiti Health Ministries to help rebuild a medical clinic, pharmacy and health education center in Gressier Queste, Haiti, which was destroyed in the 2010 earthquake.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
