Community Involvement Spotlight: Zachary Watkins and Commission on Economic Opportunity

In this week’s Community Involvement Spotlight, we recognize Zachary Watkins’ work with the Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO).

Since 1966, CEO has worked with community partners to reduce the causes and effects of poverty. As part of this effort, CEO’s Weinberg Food Bank works to alleviate hunger and promote proper nutrition, particularly among children and the elderly. The Food Bank provides food, training, technical assistance, and coordination to partners in the charitable food system across Northeast Pennsylvania.

Zach volunteered during the morning of Saturday, November 18 to help CEO and the Weinberg Regional Food Bank distribute Thanksgiving dinners at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre Township. He and the other volunteers distributed food to thousands of recipients for the holiday.
