The end of general assistance is already hurting vulnerable Pennsylvanians and the people who help them right here in our district. Keystone Opportunity Center recently stepped in to help Cheryl, who told them: “I don’t know what I am to do. [General assistance] helps with my essentials, bus fare, and laundry. Can Keystone Opportunity Center help me?”
Senator Maria Collett is partnering with the Keystone Opportunity Center to collect essential items for community members like Cheryl looking for assistance with these urgent needs. You can bring donations to my district offices through September 2 or directly to Keystone Opportunity Center. They are especially desperate for air conditioning units for the families they help house!
