Sunbury Volunteer Loves to Help
SUNBURY — Randy Strunk is one the volunteers who helps out on The Salvation Army’s Here. For Good campaign distribution days.
Strunk, of Sunbury, who has volunteered for the last two years, packs boxes of food for recipients of the funds and loads up the items in people’s cars.
“I love to help people,” said Strunk. “Now with COVID, there’s so many people who need help.”
The 2020 “Here. For Good.” campaign is a continuation of the Needy Family Fund that has raised more than $3.06 million since 1987 during the holidays to assist the Valley’s less fortunate. The campaign is administered by Salvation Army citadels in Milton and Sunbury and sponsored by The Daily Item, Sunbury Broadcasting Corp. and Mifflinburg Bank & Trust. The 1994 Charles B. Degenstein Foundation will also match the first $50,000 in donations.
