**Packaging Night will be Thursday, December 12, 2019 at Hebron Church on Frankstown Road in Penn Hills, 15235.  If you would like to help packaging, we will be at Hebron Church between 5:30 and 8 PM.

Sara loved baking cookies all year long but especially around the holidays.  Not only was baking fun, but it showed people how much she cared and loved them.  This is why Sara’s family decided to continue her tradition of baking and caring but extending it to our homeless friends in the Pittsburgh area.  Sara always carried these people in a special place in her heart. 

Sara Wally's Helping Hands, Helping Hearts is a charitable, nonprofit foundation formed to continue the mission work of Sara Walendziewicz who went Home to the Lord October 7, 2012.  

"SW4H" was created by the many family and friends of Sara who love her and want to continue her mission of working for and with people struggling with homelessness.


SW4H's largest fundraiser is currently the annual “Walk for the Homeless” which raises money and awareness for homeless people living in the Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. This Walk also provides an opportunity to enjoy the fellowship of others who share Sara’s dream and mission of caring for those in need.

Through our fundraising efforts, Helping Hands Helping Hearts is proud to be a supporter of LIVING Ministry.
