My name is Penny Johnson, I am a resident of North East for several years, an employee of Infinity Resources on South Lake Street, the Salvation Army Human Services Secretary of the North East Service Unit and the new volunteer of Powerful Pink Warriors (PPW) for “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” (Pattie Stempka retired and passed the baton ‘Ribbon’ to me).
With being involved in different areas in the community, I have realized that many in our community do not know what assistance is available; and we definitely are blessed with varied resources; thus, the idea of an informational brochure.
I have expressed to my chairperson of the Salvation Army, Pastor Stephen Pasquale, and the moderator of the North East Council of Churches, Pastor Matthew Dennison, the desire to create for distribution in our area a brochure that details what our Agencies/Churches/Businesses have available for those requiring assistance.
In addition to our local resources, a few of Erie County’s main resources will be noted as well. Hopefully, this new, concise informational brochure will assist those in need as to what is available in our area and where to start in seeking help.
Thankfully, with technology, we can gather the information needed for the brochure via email and/or Facebook.
If your Agency/Church /Business has a community-wide resource for residents of North East that you would like to share, please forward your contact information, website, and/or specific program details you would like to include in the brochure, no later than June 1, contact us through 814-725-8370 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you should have any questions or require additional information. I hope to start drafting the brochure soon.
God’s IMMENSE Blessings (Ephesians 3:20),
