The 2018 Extraordinary Give is rapidly approaching. Power Packs is asking community members to join us during this time in making a generous gift that will help provide local families with the necessary food and tools to give their children the opportunity to thrive.
Power Packs Project Administrative Assistant Medoza Ameen had the great honor to be a guest at Keith Brown’s County of Lancaster Veteran’s Court Commencement on Thursday, June 14. One of Keith’s graduation requirements was 80 hours of community service and he accomplished it by setting up multiple protein drives for Power Packs Project, raising hundreds of pounds of protein with his fellow Veteran’s Court participants. Keith also has another $200 worth of peanut butter that is on its way next week. During the program a donation collection for our mission was started with a matching gift pledged by Senior Probation Office Mary Krout. Medoza was presented with a check for $1000 that had been raised by the graduates and officers of Veteran’s Court at the ceremony.
We were so touched by not only his generous spirit and commitment to Power Packs Project but also by his story and his commitment to his fellow veterans and Court officers. His speech moved the entire room to tears and we thank him for his service.
The Lancaster Barnstormers are holding a protein food drive for the Power Packs Project. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through Friday, June 22, readers may bring donations to the box office, located at 650 N. Prince St., Lancaster.
