The 2023 PSPA Annual Charity: The Caring Cupboard
The 2023 PSPA Charity is The Caring Cupboard. The Caring Cupboard is a food bank in the Hershey area. During the pandemic, The Caring Cupboard created food boxes for employees at Hershey Medical Center and Hershey College of Medicine who were in need of food, in addition to the general population with food insecurities.
Due to the timing of our conference this year (late November-early December), they’ll be preparing for their holiday distribution. Last year they provided a full holiday meal for 220 families and a week’s worth of breakfasts and lunches for 200+ children for the week of vacation from school (when the children don’t have access to their free/reduced price breakfast and lunch programs). This year, The Caring Cupboard anticipates serving even greater numbers. Check out their website at https://www.caringcupboard.org/ for more information. We’ll be collecting items they particularly need for the holiday meal as well as items they need year round.
The PSPA contact for the Host City Charity is Rebecca Kannel, PA-C (firstname.lastname@example.org).
