Leadership Wayne collects large donation for food pantry

HONESDALE, PA — The Leadership Wayne Class of 2014 spent the month of May promoting the Wayne County Food Pantry with The Pantry Project. The idea was to raise awareness that there are many families in Wayne County in need of assistance and to boost collections at off-peak times of the year when pantries often run short. The group met with Wayne County Food Pantry Director Kathleen Terry to find out how they could help. They created flyers, brainstormed collection locations, asked businesses for support, advertised the project and dispersed collection barrels throughout the community for food and personal products. The group collected well over 2,500 pounds of food and personal products for the pantry to disperse.
