Herbology raising funds

In advance of the holiday season, Herbology dispensaries in Pennsylvania are participating in Curaleaf’s “Feed the Block” — a fundraising initiative to combat and address hunger issues in the communities in which they serve.

As part of “Feed the Block,” Herbology is partnering with Philadelphia’s Urban Affairs Coalition and the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.

Through Dec. 5, Herbology will accept donations at all nine dispensary locations, including the Altoona and DuBois facilities, to support the initiatives of those organizations to combat hunger and improve the quality of life in the regions they serve.


Bank ‘Shares the Warmth’

As part of its “Share the Warmth” holiday campaign, First Commonwealth Bank has made a $100,000 donation to Dollar Energy Fund, assisting those who are unable to pay their utility bills this upcoming winter season.

With dollar-for-dollar matching support from partner energy companies, the $200,000 will assist over 550 families in First Commonwealth Bank’s footprint in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Dollar Energy Fund administers Hardship Programs for customers of more than 40 utility companies and partners with over 450 community-based organizations.
