JERSEY SHORE, PA – Price increases over these past months on gasoline, heating oil, groceries, and just about everything else have dramatically impacted people already on the edge of food insecurity. But The New Love Center is ready to do its part when it comes to food through its Fill-a-Bag Food Drive.
