Citizens Bank co-sponsored the annual Hosanna House Babette’s Feast Nov. 19, at Hosanna House, Wilkinsburg.
The goal of the evening was to prepare and serve a feast for families in need and that all would come away from the table transformed.

The transformation was that each person would experience, some for the first time, a sense of self-worth and meaning as they experience extravagant culinary skills and services as never before.
In keeping with the Babette’s Feast tradition, Citizens Bank colleagues assisted in serving Thanksgiving dinners to 60 residents from New Foundations, which is Hosanna House’s permanent supportive housing program. New Foundations was developed to provide assistance to homeless, disabled and single-head-of-household families by providing scattered site housing and case management services.
“This is a wonderful tradition for our colleagues to work with Hosanna House, especially during the holiday season when food and family are the foundations for celebration.” said Ralph J. Papa, Chairman of Citizens Bank of Pennsylvania. “We are proud to be a co-sponsor once again.”
