P&G Among Contributors to Area Flood Relief

By Kelly Cole

Procter & Gamble delivered a tractor-trailer full of Bounty, Pampers wipes and Pampers diapers to the Wyalusing Fire Hall on Sept. 15. There seemed to be no end to that supply and their goal was to help as many flood victims as needed, for as long as they were needed. Anyone from any area affected by the flood was welcome to come and receive supplies. Hours for pick up are noon to 6 p.m.

P&G’s LaDafrica Kesler, who works in the Quality Assurance department, said they had set up shifts to accommodate flood victims between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. each day and would reassess the community needs on Sept. 19. Kesler mentioned that they had chosen to set up a base in Wyalusing because it happened to be a central point for the areas hit by the flood.

Alongside Kesler on Thursday was Deborah Miglionico, a resident of Wyalusing and an employee of P&G in the diaper department. Miglionico was thrilled to be able to help those in her community who had been affected by the flood.

Members of the Army National Guard also made a delivery to the fire hall on Thursday on behalf of the Bradford Sullivan County Chapter American Red Cross.

Sgt. Kevin Wicks, Staff Sgt. Samuel Vanloon and Specialist Nicholas Frisbie with Company C - 3/103 AR from the Wellsboro area brought a truckload of clean-up kits to the fire company that were distributed by Red Cross members.
