— A promise fulfilled: Two boxes swathed in colorful Christmas wrapping paper and filled with more than 130 non-perishable food and household items were delivered to the Wayne County Food Pantry on Dec. 18, along with a matching amount of funds.

The Wayne Memorial Rehabilitation staff at 190 Delaware St. in Honesdale collected donations at its grand reopening on Dec. 7 and promised to match them as a holiday gift to the food pantry. The rehab staff of physical, occupational and speech therapists and aides was delighted to incorporate the food pantry into their celebration.

“Tis the season for giving,” smiled Terri Henderson, occupational therapist and manager of Wayne Memorial Rehabilitation Services.

Kathleen Chicoski, who heads up the Food Pantry, noted the need for donations is year-long but especially high when the colder months arrive.

“We have a very sharing community,” said Chicoski. "We are grateful to all those such as the Wayne Memorial staff who choose to give.”

The Food Pantry operates five pantries under the leadership of the Wayne County government. They are in Honesdale, Lakeville, Newfoundland, Lakewood, and Damascus.
