How can you help?
In an increased effort to help those less fortunate, several entities in Wayne County have collaborated to create the "Wayne County Emergency Food Relief Fund", which is a central entity that will coordinate efforts to collect donations to address the food insecurity crisis that is ever-evolving in our community. Working with the Wayne County Pantry Program, families will be provided a box of food/groceries so they can prepare healthy dinners on a weekly basis.
Here is an opportunity for all of us to make a difference!
