May 19, 2022 marks the Tenth Anniversary of the Wilson Area LINCS Family Center, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located on the campus of the Wilson Area Intermediate School, 2400 Firmstone Street, Easton.
The LINCS Family Center currently offers a food pantry for almost 550 families a year, a weekend meal program for 100 students each week, a teaching garden which provides produce for the pantry, and a summer playground program offering a safe space for elementary students to learn and play. LINCS also connects individuals and families in need to local agencies and resources.
Past accomplishments include providing a community fitness center, art openings, after-school tutoring, access to clothing and shoes, and connecting families to community services.
LINCS is currently creating a community coalition to promote healthy behaviors in area youth. More information can be found by visiting https://www.lincsfamilycenter.org/programs/.
Those interested in holding a food drive for the pantry or the weekend meal bag program are encouraged to email LINCS@wilsonareasd.org or call 484-373-6200.
