WILLIAMSPORT, PA – Throughout November and December, Citizens & Northern Bank’s six Lycoming County offices will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.

Collection barrels will be placed in each office beginning Wednesday, November 7th. The public is invited to visit any of the participating offices to donate food items to the food bank. Participating offices include:

  • Jersey Shore – 230 Railroad Street
  • Muncy – 3461 Route 405 Highway
  • Old Lycoming – 1510 Dewey Avenue
  • Ralston – 24 Thompson Street
  • South Williamsport – 2 East Mountain Avenue
  • Williamsport – 130 Court Street.

The collection is an annual event for C&N’s Lycoming County offices. “In this economy, many of our neighbors are suffering,” said Stacy Elliott, Old Lycoming branch manager. “Local food banks are seeing an increased demand as food prices continue to rise. We hope this collection will help the Food Bank during the holiday season and meet the needs of our local residents this winter.”

The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank distributes more than 15 million pounds of food and grocery products every year to more than 500 soup kitchens, shelters, and food pantries in 27 central Pennsylvania counties. These agencies directly feed thousands of hungry families throughout central Pennsylvania. More information on the food bank is available at www.centralpafoodbank.org.
