Virtual Food Drive
This is a difficult and challenging time, both around the globe and right here in central Pennsylvania. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to present our community with unforeseeable challenges - thousands in our area have been severely impacted by missed work, increased childcare expenses, uncovered medical bills, and other financial pitfalls.
We’re here to help those neighbors. Please join AAA Central Penn in contributing to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. Every $1 donated helps provide 6 meals.
More than ever, donations are vital to ensure that as more people need food assistance during this crisis, the charitable food system will be able to rise to the need. As of now, it is estimated the Food Bank’s COVID-19 effort will cost at least $100,000 per week to maintain and more than $1 million until the economic impact is over due to increased costs with crisis response food and packing supplies, trucking and other crisis operational costs.
Where to Go for Help: Individuals in need of help are encouraged to call 211 (or send a text including your zip code). 211 is a non-emergency line that connects individuals directly to programs and services based on areas of need. Individuals can also access 211 online at uwp.org/211gethelp/.
