Needy Family Fund continues to grow…slowly


SUNBURY – The Needy Family Fund is growing slowly, now up to $38,353.13.  The fund has a $100,000 goal by Christmas Day. All of the funds go to buy food, toys and clothing for over 500 families in The Valley. Today $1,300 are added to the fund.


The Daily Item and WKOK sponsor the fund each year to raise money for eligible families, and lately, Cherie Jarrett of New Columbia donated $200, the Hollenbach family of Shamokin Dam contributed $25, and there were numerous other contributions in varying amounts.
