Second Harvest Looks to Minimize Anxiety in East Palestine

EAST PALESTINE, Ohio – Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley delivered 70 air purifiers to the First Church of Christ. The donation was made possible by Home Depot.

Residents of East Palestine are encouraged to call the church at 330 426 9687 to be put on the wait list. The distribution will be ongoing throughout the week.

“We’re a few months out from the derailment, and one of the things that we’re finding is that there are still a lot of anxieties that kind of go along with the derailment,” says Kim Brock, director of operations for Second Harvest. “Our goal at Second Harvest is to just really try to alleviate and minimize some of those anxieties just so people can hopefully get back sooner rather than later to a form of normal.”
