Pike County Food Banks Receive $10,000 from the Human Resources Center Foundation

PIKE COUNTY, PA – The Pike County Office of Human Services received $10,000 from the Human Resources Foundation in Honesdale, PA to support Pike’s five local food banks, which are serving significantly more residents during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

“We are extremely appreciative of this much needed assistance,” says Robert Ruiz, Director of Pike County Human Services. “It will go a long way to help local residents who depend on these food banks.”

Each food bank typically receives an allocation of about $2,000 per month from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, which can only be used to purchase food.

The additional funding provided by the Human Resources Foundation can be used to cover non-food items such as utensils and cleaning supplies, which are currently in accelerated use for proper safety and disinfecting.

“We are so please to assist Pike County in its time of need, especially during an unprecedented crisis such as the one presented by COVID-19,” says Stephanie Uhranowsky, Human Resources Foundation Director. “We hope these funds provide the intermittent relief that the food banks so desperately need.”

Friends of Mike Peifer also provided $1,000 to support Pike County’s food banks.
