Pashinski hosts event to inform community of state programs, government services

HARRISBURG, March 22 – State Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski hosted a legislative outreach event for residents today in the community at the Wilkes-Barre Housing Authority – Lincoln Plaza in Wilkes-Barre.

“Pennsylvania has a wealth of resources for those who live here, which can make it hard for many to keep track of how much help is out there for them,” said Pashinski. “I am glad my staff and I had the opportunity today to share details about programs spanning from the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program and PACE/PACENET, all the way to the Yellow Dot Program.”

Pashinski, working in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Treasury, also informed those in attendance about unclaimed property and the money owed to them of which they are unaware.

“What is so great about unclaimed property is that it is a free service, with no cost to claim the property, meaning those who are eligible will receive money owed them. These physical assets often include collectible coins, jewelry, military medals, stamps, antiques, savings bonds or other physical items. My office is always open to assist those in our community with these and other programs. That is what we are here for,” he said.
