Groceries For Change Project Is Underway
Submitted By Kathie Shelly

Susquehanna County members of Change for America have organized to collect groceries the week of January 12 for the food banks in South Montrose and Oakland, and you're invited to participate. We are collecting at a number of grocery stores, look for the box or barrel. Elk Lake Schools are also collecting that week. Due to the dire need, please donate through your church, school or grocery store, regardless of whether our name is on a box. The food banks are also accepting money donations. Make checks payable to Susquehanna County TREHAB and mark for food bank. They can go to the food banks along with the groceries.

Meeting at Pamela Kelly's home December 14 and 21, and at St. Paul's Parish House in Montrose, about 25 Obama supporters from both parties answered his transition team's call to help make positive changes in our local communities. We chose to help the food banks as our first project. In contacting churches, stores and schools, we were delighted to discover how generous the people of Susquehanna County are and how much difference their efforts have already made for the holiday season. In these hard times, scarcity and hunger continue unabated. The food banks need non perishable foods. They also need cleaning products, bath soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, laundry detergent, baby wipes, disposable diapers, toilet paper, trash bags and feminine products.

Participating stores include ABC Market, Montrose; Robinson's Market, S. Montrose; Rob's Market, Hallstead; and Schneider's Market, Susquehanna.

This is the first of many possible community service projects. We'll celebrate this first effort Sunday, January 18, at 3 p.m. at St. Paul's Parish House, Montrose, Rte. 706 (Church St.) near the HO gas station. Please come! We'll continue our discussions of what positive changes we can make. The challenges may be found in improving the economy, education, health care, climate change, energy, transparent government, taking charge of our lives, and making our voices heard. Everyone is invited. Committee members, please bring a dish to pass. Everyone, bring a friend and a donation for the food banks, in money or groceries. Bring your inspiration, your hope and your ideas.
