Just wanted to share the good news that the Sisters of St. Joseph Annual Thanksgiving Dinner will take place this year.
Given the continued challenges of the COVID pandemic, we will serve the dinner as we did in 2020 – which means contact-free meal delivery only; no onsite dining or takeout orders.
We’re fast at work on logistics – including getting information to the donors who make this possible and to the organizations and housing units we typically serve. And thanks to our amazing friends, we have almost all of our volunteer spots filled.
If you receive calls or know of anyone who is in need of a meal on Thanksgiving, please let them know that we will take meal orders between 9 a.m. and noon Tuesday, Nov. 16 – ONLY. The number to call that day is 814-836-4198.
On Friday October 22nd from 10-11am, the Erie County Department of Health in partnership with LECOM’s School of Pharmacy is hosting a presentation entitled: The Epidemic Amongst The Pandemic: An Opioid Crisis
Presenter Benjamin McDonald, LECOM graduate student, will list the areas of Erie County hit the hardest by the opioid epidemic and compare its impact across the years. He will identify the drugs most likely to result in an accidental overdose death and then examine the relationship between the pandemic and the increase in opioid deaths.
Presenter Mary Rose Kerner, ECDH epidemiology investigator, will wrap up the presentation with the Opioid Prevention Initiatives she is spearheading at the Erie County Department of Health.
