With many people struggling through the pandemic, foodbanks are an essential need now more than ever. Here are a few examples of FirstEnergy employees helping local foodbanks to help others.
Food banks are very much in need of volunteers during COVID-19. Greensburg employees recently volunteered at the local Salvation Army Food Bank and at the Westmoreland County Food Bank. Our employees assisted by loading cars with pre-packed boxes of food for distribution to local food pantries.
The FirstEnergy Foundation presented a $5,000 check to the Hunters Sharing the Harvest (HSH) Program. Since 1991, HSH has coordinated the processing and distribution of donated wild game from hunters to hungry people throughout Pennsylvania. The program effectively channels wholesome venison through a network of registered and inspected deer processors and food banks, down to local charitable organizations.
