Wayne Bank Will Host 2nd Annual Wayne County Food Pantry Drive During Honesdale for the Holidays

Honesdale, PA – To coincide with the Greater Honesdale Partnership’s Honesdale for the Holidays, Wayne Bank’s Honesdale Main Street Community Office will host their 2nd Annual Food Pantry Drive.

From November 19th-30th, the office will collect non-perishable food items for the Wayne County Food Pantry. Donations can be made during regular lobby hours and anyone who donates a pantry item will receive a special Honesdale themed ornament, while supplies last.*

The Main Street Community Office will also host Open House events on November 23rd and 24th, to celebrate Honesdale for the Holidays. Open to the public and offering complimentary refreshments and giveaway items, these events will provide the perfect opportunity to give back while enjoying some seasonal cheer.

“We hosted our first Food Pantry Drive last year during Honesdale for the Holidays and were thrilled to collect and donate nine large boxes of pantry items to the Wayne County Food Pantry,” said Jill Hessling, Vice President and Regional Manager for Wayne Bank. “We are passionate about helping our local community, so we decided to make this a tradition during the season of giving and host our 2nd Annual Honesdale for the Holidays Food Pantry Drive. This is a busy time of the year for everyone, but please consider taking a few minutes out of your day to stop by our lobby with some canned goods or shelf-stable items, so that together we can help make a difference for those in need during the holiday season.”

The Wayne County Pantry Program is sponsored through County Government and operates under a Board comprised of private citizens, who also coordinate each of the pantry sites. The Wayne County Pantry Program has five sites located in strategic areas of the County to serve eligible County residents, including Honesdale, Lakeville, Newfoundland, Lakewood, and Damascus. All donations stay in Wayne County and assist Wayne County residents. Donations of food, paper products, personal care items, and money to purchase foods are needed year-round.
