Bureau Commemorates Food Check-Out Day

The Susquehanna County Farm Bureau will be celebrating Food Check-Out Day on February 10, as a means of recognizing that growing and raising wholesome food is a farmer’s top goal. PA farmers are committed to producing safe, abundant and healthy food. Food Check-Out Day will be observed through charitable donations of grocery gift cards and money to the Scranton Ronald McDonald House. Non-perishable food items will be distributed to county food banks and pantries.

“The Ronald McDonald House is a great home away from home for parents and children, waiting for a loved one receiving medical attention at a local hospital,” said Cheryl Matulevich, SCFB Women’s Leadership/Food Check-Out Day Coordinator. “It takes a lot of resources to provide this charitable service for our region. Due to economic turmoil, there is an increasing use of our county food banks and pantries, by families in need of support.”

Contributions of money (checks made payable to Scranton Ronald McDonald House) and grocery gift cards can be sent to Cheryl Matulevich, RR 1 Box 1045, Hop Bottom, PA 18824. Contributions will be presented to Scranton Ronald McDonald House during a Food Check-Out Day program on February 10.

Contributions of non-perishable food items can be made by calling Cheryl Matulevich, 289–4114; Donna Williams, 942–6348; Barb Roszel, 278–2433; or Kathie Shelly 756–2429.

Leadership 2020 Class Organizes Seminar

Fundraising Ideas for Tough Times has been organized by Penn State Cooperative Extension’s Leadership 2020 Class VII as a way to help non-profit groups. Attendees will learn about success in grant writing from Eric McGinnis, fundraising in rural areas, and how to establish an endowment.

The seminar will take place February 7 at the Blue Ridge Elementary School cafeteria, beginning at 8:30 a.m. Class member Donna Simpson says, “Every organization, whether for profit or non-profit is struggling with their money these days. Since many non-profits depend on the generosity of others to meet their operational needs, we feel this seminar will offer tried and true solutions that can be used right now.”

Registration for the event is due February 1. For information, call 278-1158.
