Rep. Stan Saylor (R-York) announced a $250,000 grant for Community REACH Inc., which is based in Red Lion. Community REACH is a nonprofit focused on helping low-income families in the Red Lion, Dallastown and Eastern York school districts. The organization operates a food pantry and a clothing drive, provides life skill training, and collects and distributes school supplies for local students.
Community REACH Inc. was founded in 1975 and has been helping the local community ever since. So far in 2018, the organization has helped approximately 190 families each month. There are at least 165 children, 260 adults and 100 seniors within those households. Many clients are veterans and an increasing number of clients deal with temporary or insecure living arrangements and several are homeless.
“I am proud to announce $250,000 in new state funding that I secured for the Community REACH Inc. This is an important local charity which helps many York County families deal with challenges such as food insecurity. Community REACH is an example of what communities can do to address poverty. I have been honored to volunteer with this great organization throughout the year. This funding will help Community REACH serve more local families who live in the Red Lion, Dallastown and Eastern York school districts.”
Community REACH Inc. is a nonprofit located at 15 First Ave., Red Lion
