Penske Truck Rental helps out with Union-Endicott meal deliveries


first_imgAt Union-Endicott, Kashif Summers, the school community coordinator, knew he wanted to get involved. “When he mentioned he might need a helping hand one day, we donated a truck and a guy for the helping hour. So it’s just a way to give back, as well,” said Mass. The deliveries are helping to get the Penske name out into the community. The Union-Endicott School District is participating in the summer food service program. Summers started helping with the deliveries, getting the word out. “I’m a people person — I love the kids. They always ask about me. They’ll let you know I’m always involved with stuff that has to do with the community and the kids. It’s a great feeling to be able to come out and help. I just love to help people — that’s just my niche,” he said. For a list of pick-up locations, head to the district website by clicking here. Mass knew he had the resources to make a difference. Then his friend Dario Mass, who is a branch manager at Penske Truck Rental, asked how he could lend a hand. For the past few weeks, Mass and Summers have been loading up a Penske truck, making stops around town. “We usually knock on the door and walk away, continuing the social distancing and whatnot. This way, I’m able to still stay connected with the kids. I can still speak to them from a distance and still let them know I’m around, and they could reach out to me,” said Summers. ENDICOTT (WBNG) — When schools closed for the year, many districts still provided meals to students. Many even offered deliveries for those who could not make it to grab-and-go sites. But what really matters is helping the kids in the Southern Tier. “It helps with the values that I was brought up with, a helping hand, especially during this crazy time, it’s awesome to give back,” said Mass. “I thought that was great that a business would reach out and say, ‘Hey, let’s help out the kids, and the community, and whatnot,”‘ said Summers. “Maybe this will encourage other businesses to come out and help and show their support. And in return, the people in the community will show their support to the businesses,” said Summers.last_img read more

Food Bank of the Southern Tier says demand is at all-time high, expected to get worse


first_imgRandi says even before the pandemic, trying to keep up with the demand was difficult. She says since last year, the demand has risen nearly 80 percent in their programs across the area, varying at certain locations. “I’m expecting a tsunami,” said Director of Community Impact for the food bank, Randi Quackenbush, as she described what the demand would be like the first week of August now that unemployment benefits have expired. Randi says with the unemployment benefits expiring the last week of July and the second stimulus package from Washington is still undecided by democrats and republicans, she fears matters could get worse and there could be a serious spike in demand once again. If you are in need of assistance or would like to volunteer your time, you can visit the food bank’s main website. The Food Bank of the Southern Tier has had to make arrangements to fit the pandemic. Some of their elderly volunteers had to leave due to the risk of exposure and they’ve had to limit ways they contact the public, which can be hard for a program like this. “I’m terrified of what next week might look like for our network, for our distributions,” said Quackenbush. “I’m expecting a tsunami. So, we’re really urging the Senate to consider food assistance and any other direct payments to families in this time. It’s not going away anytime soon.” (WBNG) — The Food Bank of the Southern Tier says the pandemic has caused more food insecurity, but it could get worse as unemployment benefits expire.last_img read more
