The Susquehanna County Career & Technology Center recently received a $500 grant from Walmart in Tunkhannock to sponsor it's Backpack Weekend Food Program. This program helps to feed elementary school children who experience food insecurity. Students who qualify and opt into the program receive a bag with two breakfast meals, two lunch meals and two snacks for the weekend.
The food is given to students every Friday and before holiday breaks to provide adequate food and nutrients for the student when school is not in session. The grant received from Walmart will help feed numerous families within the district. SCCTC Executive Director, Dr. Alice M. Davis states, "With food insecurity on the rise, this grant will help build this program by leaps and bounds. No child should come to school hungry and with continued donations, we are confident that childhood hunger in our community can be eradicated."
How can you help? Non-perishable food items can be dropped off at the SCCTC's Building A. Monetary donations can be made payable to: SCCTC Backpack Food Program, 2380 Elk Lake School Road, Springville, PA 18844.
The Susquehanna County Career & Technology Center was recently the recipient of car donations from the Pompey Automotive Group of dealerships. The Pompey Automotive Group joins a long list of business and industry partners that financially support the SCCTC programs.

Scranton Dodge donated a Dodge Nitro and Tunkhannock Ford a Ford Focus. Both cars will provide students endless learning opportunities. As the cars were unloaded, students were quick to move them into the Automotive Technology shop.
Dr. Alice M. Davis, Executive Director stated, "These donated vehicles will help our students prepare for either higher education or the workforce. Working on these newer automobiles only increases our students' potential for greatness."
The SCCTC is beyond grateful for the generosity of both Scranton Dodge and Tunkhannock Ford.
