On Saturday, Dec. 22, the 32nd annual Lancaster County Project for the Needy (LCPN) holiday dinner distribution will take place at the Lancaster Barnstormers' home stadium, 650 N. Prince St., Lancaster. The project will distribute an estimated 1,200 boxes of turkey dinners with all the trimmings to low-income families throughout Lancaster County. The distribution will begin at 8 a.m., and no pre-screening is required.
In addition to the distribution, LCPN is partnering with Elizabethtown Community Homeless Outreach Services, Conestoga Valley Christian Community Services (CVCCS), the Columbia Lions and TLC Homelessness and Veterans to provide meals to families in designated areas. Hot beverages and food will be handed out to the recipients by the Lancaster County Coalition to End Homelessness.
LCPN is still seeking donations to offset the cost of purchasing the groceries for the dinner. The project relies on individual donations for over two-thirds of the resources needed to fund the food distribution. More information is available by calling 717-569-8521.
