Day of Action

11/8/2012

A community event was held on Saturday, 10/20/12 coordinated by United Way of Susquehanna County (UWSC). The event was held at Trehab in South Montrose, PA. The purpose of the event was to build raised gardens beds that will be used to grow produce that will supplement the local food bank.

There were many people and businesses who generously volunteered their time, talent and financial resources to the project including: 

Lynn Senick, Director of Trehab Food Bank

Kathy Tuttle, Director of Lackawanna College-New Milford                                                                   

Joe Pippitone and staff from Top Notch Tree Service

Young Republicans-Byrce Powers, Matt Fearnley, Bill Umberger

Kristen Hamilton, Community Relations Director, B/S/S/T Area Agency on Aging, Inc.

Jason Legg, County District Attorney

Joel Levy, United Way volunteer

Greg Banks, United Way supporter

In giving of their generous financial donations along with their time and expertise, each year, the season's bounties will be harvested and distributed to those in need in Susquehanna County.

In addition, Trehab and the UWSC would like to graciously acknowledge a financial contribution of $1000 from B/S/ST Area Agency on Aging, Inc. funded through a grant in support of this project.
