The Elk County Commissioners helped fill dry-goods boxes at The Good Samaritan Food Bank in Ridgway on Wednesday. Conveniently located behind the Ridgway Branch of Elk County Foods in the basement of the Knights of Columbus Building. The hours of operation are the 3rd Thursday of every month from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Food Items are obtained through local donations, including the generous support of Elk County Foods and the St. Marys Walmart, and from funds and commodities provided by The Emergency Food Assistance Program, State Food Purchase Program, and the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program. If you would like to sign up to volunteer or are requesting assistance, please call (814) 776-1517.
