Waysiders consistently assist the Hempfileld Area Food Pantry with help and donations. Diane Gerlach, Volunteer Coordinator for the Pantry says, “The Pantry served 189 children & 248 adults in May. Many families come to the pantry every week…this gives a grand total of 1,309 people served for the month May. Forty-nine volunteers gave 472 hours for the month! Many thanks for your continuing support to the pantry to help families in the Hempfield area struggling to feed their families !!! God Bless you!”
Requested items for the month of July: cereal, canned carrots, green beans, & mixed vegetables, canned potatoes, Ramon noodles, Penna pasta, Large peanut butter, Large jelly (no glass containers)
Watch for final totals from Wayside’s 10th annual Waystock! The “Businesses on Battery” food drive collected over 750 pounds of food for the Pantry. Once all expenses & receipts have been calculated, Wayside plans to present a check to the Pantry for over $3,000, along with several gift cards donated by local grocery stores. Thank you all!
