After getting assignments, instructions and a box lunch the Rotarians were given a brief overview of the various works performed by the Army volunteers at the facility.  According to Rotarian/participant Karen Good, “it was so encouraging to hear of lives being helped and changed by food distribution, cooking classes and various events for children provided by the Salvation Army.” 

RCH members were guided through various task by Army staff member Megan Bachmore.

Other attending RCH members, Shaun Eng and Gail Rebuck, Wendall Hoover, Sue Ward Diorio and Alex Rajis, put together recipe bags to accompany food distribution received from the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. Nearly 100 bags were filled to include recipes and ingredients to make a nutritious vegetable soup.
