Released: November 29, 2022

Nearly a half ton of food collected for local pantry

Delaware County Council commends and thanks the George W. Hill Correctional Facility, under the direction of Warden Laura K. Williams, for holding a nearly month-long food drive this November to collect food for the community.

Over 800 pounds of non-perishable food was donated by the George W. Hill Correctional Facility staff, contractors, and individuals from partnering criminal justice organizations, providing much needed food items for local residents experiencing food insecurity.

The St. Katharine Drexel Food Pantry, located at 1408 W. 2nd St., in Chester was the recipient of the donations and will distribute the food to residents in need across the county.

The Holiday Food Drive, an initiative of Warden Williams, is one of several efforts by the facility to re-establish connections with residents and stakeholders, be a good neighbor, and build trust among members of the community.

Council commends the entire George W. Hill Correctional Facility team for their contributions, including George Rhoades, Keith Heyward, Sarah Bowles, Nikki Miller, Katherine Miller, Dana Keith, WellPath, Captain McCarthy, Officer Wells and Officer Yates for providing their time and energy to make the Holiday Food Drive a success.
