Helene Gleason of Conemaugh Health System said, "I talked to some wonderful people who really want to get involved and really want to help the community."If you missed the Project Party but would like to get involved, give back, pay it forward, or do something for someone less fortunate, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 814-536-5107 and we can help you connect with a variety of organizations looking for help. Instead of family game night or working out, do something different - help out.
Be a good neighbor. Feel good about how you spend some of that "me" time.
