Nonperishable donations are needed and accepted at the bin in the foyer of the Jim Thorpe Market. Many working families are struggling to provide for their families. A little girl told an organizer that her family was having peanut butter sandwiches for dinner because her Daddy had just paid the oil bill. Please help provide additional healthy nutrition for our local families by donating.
