FREE FOOD FOR ALL

The Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA distributes fruits ,vegetables, and other foods as available in the WBYMCA lobby during cold weather months and outside in warm weather twice a month. Food Distributions take place from 2-6 on the second Friday and fourth Wednesday of each month.

GEISINGER FRIENDLY NEIGHBORS

The Geisinger Friendly Neighbor program was established to help those in our community facing challenges from social isolation to lack of resources (food, shelter, transportation, medical and more). Enroll as a participant who needs services or as a volunteer to help your neighbors. Friendly Neighbor volunteers connect with participants via phone, and/or video call. In doing so, they help them find the resources they need as well as build a supportive community of their own.

Please contact Dominic Griffith if you’d like to sign up to receive this service.
