Local Volunteers Step Up to the Plate to Fight Hunger in Pennsylvania


As we all know, last week State Legislators stepped out of the Capitol Building and onto the field at Metro Bank Park for the second annual Capitol All-Stars Softball Game. With an initial total raised of $61,750 and counting for anti-hunger campaigns statewide, it is time to relay a special thank you to the volunteers who helped make the this year’s game possible.
