Finleyville Food Pantry eyeing KeyBank branch as possible new home

Downtown Finleyville in Washington County.

The Finleyville Food Pantry is asking for help in its search for a new home.

The food pantry in the tiny Washington County borough has its eyes on the Finleyville KeyBank branch, which is scheduled to close May 3 as part of a consolidation plan.

“We’re trying to get a place, and it’s just hard in Finleyville,” said secretary Cheryl Gereshenski.

The food pantry is located at First Presbyterian Church but needs a new home. When KeyBank announced in February that it was closing branches in Finleyville and Smithton, food pantry officials began looking at the building as a possible permanent location.

“It would be wonderful,” Gereshenski said, noting the location would be safer for food pantry clients. “If ours would close up, I don’t know what the people would do.”

To move there, the food bank has begun soliciting donations to raise enough money for a down payment. Donations may be sent to: Finleyville Food Pantry Building Fund, 415 Main St., New Eagle, PA 15067.

For more information, call Pat Trumpie at 412-616-7573.

The food pantry distributes food to qualifying individuals and families from 9 a.m. to noon on the third Saturday of the month, and distributes produce from 9-10:30 a.m. on the remaining Saturdays.

The Finleyville Food Pantry is part of the Greater Washington County Food Bank network.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
