Burns to collect nonperishable food for community

EBENSBURG, March 30 – State Rep. Frank Burns, D-Cambria, announced today that his offices will serve as a collection point for a monthlong food drive.

“As the cost of living continues to rise, more families are financially struggling. I want to do what I can to help those in our community,” Burns said. “No one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone.”

Anyone wishing to donate unexpired, nonperishable food items may drop off the items at one of Burns’ offices between April 1 and April 30.

  • 535 Fairfield Ave., Johnstown, 15906
  • 119 S. Center St., Ebensburg, 15931

All items will be donated to local food pantries.

Burns said that while all non-perishable items are welcome, donations of boxed goods such as cereal or instant potatoes, pudding, and canned vegetables such as corn, green beans and sweet potatoes, are of particular need.

For more information or questions, those interested can call Burns’ office at 814-472-8021.
