Jenkins Township, Luzerne County (WBRE/WYOU) We’re marking the 20th anniversary of our company’s beginning with Founder’s Day. Nexstar employees are in communities volunteering Friday.
Employees both here and around the country will give back to communities. Some of our employees will be helping out at the St. Francis of Assisi Kitchen in Scranton, the St. Vincent DePaul Kitchen in Wilkes-Barre and Weinberg Food Bank in Jenkins Township.
Combined, the two soup kitchens listed above serve around 500 meals a day. It takes a massive volunteer force.
Monsignor Joseph Kelly is the director of the St. Francis of Assisi Kitchen. He says “without volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to afford to do what we do.”
St. Francis of Assisi Kitchen has room for between 5-10 volunteers seven days a week. The number is similar for St. Vincent DePaul Kitchen, and the Weinberg Food Bank usually needs around 20 people five days a week to satisfy its needs of filling 1,900 senior food boxes a month.
