Families in Need COVID Relief

Virtual 5K
 

Saturday, May 23, 2020
 

The coronavirus pandemic has shed new light on the problem of food insecurity in central Pennsylvania. Faculty and students at Penn State College of Medicine have partnered with Penn State Health's Community Relations Team and community food pantries, like the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and the Caring Cupboard of Palmyra, to help people and families at risk. 

You Can Help! 

Register for the virtual 5K and help raise funds to support this current, prevelent need!

The funds raised through this virtural 5K will support the Community Relations Fund and provide food boxes to individuals in need and their households during illness and mandatory home isolation. Most importantly, your fundraising efforts will help keep these vulnerable people safe and provide them with the items they need but cannot obtain themselves. 

"These past several weeks have been heartbreaking as I discover more and more patients and their families with COVID-19 who do not have adequate food at home. They do not know how to maintain home isolation when they do not have anyone to bring food to them."

- Susan Borys, MD, Internal Medicine
