Regional PennDOT Employees Wrap Up Charitable Giving

Montoursville, PA – PennDOT employees in the nine-county District 3 region reached deep in their pockets and gave their time in 2018 to help those in need.
“Our employees are driven to give back to the community and help those less fortunate, which demonstrates outstanding public service,” said District 3 Executive Sandra Tosca. “They continually show great energy and enthusiasm in charitable efforts.”

Employees in Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Snyder, Sullivan, Tioga and Union counties pledged more than $36,000 to the State Employees Combined Appeal (SECA) campaign, under the umbrella of which more than 1,000 non-profit organizations and charities benefit.

In addition, a $500 donation was made to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank through the district’s Treats for Eats program. Since it began in 2012, the program has raised and donated $4,000 to the agency and other district-supported charities. Additionally, a friendly “food fight” – a competition to see which of the PennDOT units could raise the most money for Footprints of Montgomery, Inc., food bank – raised $1,200 and collected 65 pounds of non-perishable food for the organization. The Construction Unit was the winner of the food fight for the third consecutive year.

Through the Eighth Annual Bill Craver Bikes for Tykes program, enough money was raised to buy and assemble 35 bicycles and two battery-operated power wheels for children in the area. Those bikes, along with more than 65 toys and games were collected and given to Toys for Tots to be distributed to local families. The bicycle drive was named in honor of the late Bill Craver, who served as a PennDOT maintenance worker in Lycoming County until his retirement. Bill was known for his personal donation of a dozen or so bicycles to charity each year. Nearly 300 bikes have been bought and distributed since the memorial project began.

During December, two employees led a benefit for children served in the foster care program Families United Network. Ornament cards on a Christmas tree in a district office conference room carried the first name and age of children available to “adopt” for the Christmastime program. Each included a wish list from the child. District employees “adopted” 22 children and delivered gifts to them.

Money wasn’t the only thing employees were willing to give. The district hosted two blood drives that resulted in approximately 30 donations to the Red Cross and Community Blood Bank.

In addition to supporting SECA, county maintenance office employees embraced several local charities in 2018.

Lycoming County Maintenance employees collected $140 to purchase toys and games for the local Toys for Tots program.

Northumberland County Maintenance employees collected approximately $125 worth of toys and games for Toys for Tots, and 19 coats, plus hats and mittens, for the Lower Anthracite United Way’s Keep Our Kids Warm campaign.
