I also wanted to remind you that my office is accepting food donationsthroughout the month of August and to let you know about my upcomingCoffee with McCarter on Saturday, August 24, 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
RACP Grant Awarded to Salus University

I’m proud to report that Governor Wolf has released $500,000 in grant funds to Salus University’s Physician Assistant Program from the state Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP). This deserving project will help develop Pennsylvania’s healthcare delivery team by preparing graduates to be physician assistants.

The RACP funds will help renovate two 50-seat traditional, lecture-style classrooms into collaborative learning environments, renovate its clinical procedures lab, and add a patient treatment simulation lab.

The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program helps spur economic growth through regional economic, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects.
Mark Your Calendar for Coffee with McCarter!

Join me on Saturday, August 24 from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at Dunkin Donuts in La Mott to hear about what’s going on in Harrisburg and to ask me questions and share your concerns.
Help Your Neighbors This Summer

Just a reminder: Since food banks typically run low in the summertime, my office is accepting food donations that are unopened, nonperishable and unexpired throughout the month of August.

Needed items include peanut butter, pasta, coffee, iced tea, juices, pancake mix, syrup, condiments such as mayonnaise, ketchup and salad dressing, and personal care items such as soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, feminine hygiene products, deodorant and laundry detergent.

Please doublecheck expiration dates, then drop donations by my office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, through the month of August.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call (215) 572-5210 or

Have a wonderful weekend!
