WILLIAMSPORT – United Way of Pennsylvania is pleased to announce

that the Lycoming County United Way has been awarded a $1,500 sub-grant, from a Land O’

Lakes Foundation grant to United Way of Pennsylvania. The Land O’ Lakes Mid-Atlantic Grants

Program works to support valuable projects and charitable endeavors in local communities, that

improve quality of life. Land O’ Lakes awarded this funding on behalf of their East Coast Hunger

Initiative, specifically supporting the hunger and food needs of local United Way communities.

In order to support their feeding outreach program, the Lycoming County United Way presented

a check for $1,500 to Sojourner Truth Ministries as part of the United Way’s commitment to

feeding friends and neighbors in our communities.

Rev. C. Angelique Labadie-Cihanowyz, Theresa DiMaggio and several board members accepted

the check from Lycoming County United Way, represented by Melyssa McHale, Director of

Community Impact and Ron Frick, President in front of Sojourner Truth Ministries facility at the

corner of Center and High Streets in the City of Williamsport.

“Sojourner Truth Ministries has been a steady presence in a neighborhood that needs that

stability,” said Ron Frick. Angelique and her team have used the feeding program to be able to

lead their sojourners to other important skills and abilities. Without feeding their souls, there

would be less possibility of making an impact.”

The grant will help Sojourner feed 750 people at an average cost per meal of just two dollars.
