“She hadn’t gotten a gift in five years for Christmas…”

Local News

A special delivery for seniors at the John F. Kennedy Center today thanks to Highmark employees.

The Erie Community Foundation joins UPMC Hamot, Gannon University, and Erie Bank in efforts to assist the EDDC.  ‘PALS’ Program Coordinator Randy Detweiler tells us, “Our employees go above and beyond to get them wonderful gifts for seniors who may not get a gift otherwise around the holiday season. One lady last year told me she hadn’t gotten a gift in five years for Christmas, so it’s just a huge difference to brighten their holiday.”

Seniors at the JFK will open the gifts during their holiday party next week.
