Penn National Insurance will once again participate in the Corporate Food Challenge August 30 through September 24. Last year, we brought in 1,798 pounds of food! Our goal for this year is 2,500 pounds! You can help change the lives of many families in our community who are having difficulty putting food on the table during these tough economic times.

Bins will be placed in the lobby, and once again we will have competitions each week to see which department will bring in the heaviest amount of food.
