Ollie’s Dinners for Kids Program
The Ollie’s Dinners for Kids program has been operating for the past two years. David Tevet, Ollie’s owner, recognized a need in the community and decided to do something about it. The program provides meals to children identified by the Wyoming Valley West School District and the Commission on Economic Opportunity. Three days a week meals prepared at Ollie’s are distributed by volunteers to qualifying families in Kingston, Edwardsville, Larksville, and Plymouth. Charlie Dancheck serves as the coordinator for the delivery portion of the program and the following COCU members served as drivers and runners during the past year: Leslie Bullock, Charlie and Ginny Dancheck, Marilyn Dussinger, Amy Ellsworth, Colin Harrison, Wendy Harrison, Carol and John Johnson, Evelyn Kersey, Francine and Jack Lewis, Cathy Price, Mimi Romanowski, Beverly Sobocinski, and Jack and Joyce Wise. If you would like more information or can volunteer, contact Charlie Dancheck or the church office at 570-288-8434.
