Community Response Team

In good times and bad, the Cranberry Township residents have a history of supporting one another. Fundraisers, charity drives and service projects are commonplace and a large part of what makes the Township a great place to live, work and play. 

Now, with many members of our community facing an unprecedented shutdown of daily life, that community spirit is needed more than ever. That’s why the Township is seeking individuals to help ease the burden the pandemic is having on the community. Volunteers will help provide those in need with essential basic human needs like food, water, or toiletries. By doing this, they can help make the day a little brighter in a term of uncertainty. 

Healthy volunteers who want to help, as well as residents in need of assistance are asked to contact the Township via links at or by calling 724-776-4806.
