Thank You Highmark!

The Neighborhood Center is thankful to Highmark for their sponsorship of the Power Pack Pantry.  The Power Pack Pantry is a place for children, who participate in Neighborhood Center programs, to choose healthy foods to take home with them over the weekend at no cost to them or their families.  Without Highmark’s support, we would not be able to provide this important resource to our families.  Thank you so much!
