Although Governor Tom Wolf has moved our county out of the red zone into the yellow phase in his plan to reopen Pennsylvania, times are still tough for many of us. Many Americans are unemployed. Jobs are scarce, and bills continue to arrive in our mailboxes. To help us in our time of need, one Avoca organization is banding together to put food on our tables.
Avoca Food Pantry will be open at 4 p.m. Thursdays, June 4 and 18, at Bethel United Methodist Church, 532 Main St. The food, which is provided by the CEO Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank, can be picked up in the rear entry of the building. Volunteers to unload and distribute food, are needed at 1:30 p.m. For information, please call Jim at 570-921-9899.
