"A big shoutout to the Construction Management Association for joining in. They all had great attitudes and superb energy that motivated the rest of the group to keep going," said Jenelle Longacre, the Food Bank's volunteer project coordinator. "In fact, they helped this group to the point of breaking their own record of boxes packed during an event!" The old record was 950 boxes in 2½ hours; Tuesday's group packed 970 boxes in an hour and 50 minutes. "Our volunteers are truly the heart of our mission," added Longacre, who noted that the Food Bank delivers to seven sites in the Northern Tier. Penn College has a history of service to the nonprofit, with frequent visits from student organizations, fraternities and employees.
