The Laurel Highlands Historical village will be collecting Food and paper products for area veterans and elderly who are shut in and need the help.   During the winter season  our food collections locations include , The Corner Coffee Shop, Rizzo Chiropractic on 400 N Center St, Ebensburg, Hoss’s Ebensburg & Johnstown, AT Merchant in Galleria Mall, and Imler’s Outlet Store Altoona.     As our efforts continue we find more and more people in need every day.  We have been on a mission to get as much food as we can, as the demand continues to rise.  

We also want to thank the various business who continue to help our veterans. We also want to thank ZGrills for donating a grill which will be used to cook the raw meats we receive, in turn provide our veterans with a hot meal.

Also we are looking for any household item (still working) that we can recycle and give to the folks who could use same i.e. blender, electric skillets, crock pots, coffee pots, towels etc. Please call our office for pickup of these items.

Items needed: Can goods, canned meats, heat & serve meals, rice meals, etc. snacks, rice meals, cheese, meat,  drinks, coffee, drink mixes, paper goods, hygiene products, small gifts, small kitchen appliances (blender, mixer, etc.) , and any other items you feel can be used.

Also ask your church, or work place if they would run a food drive for same.  

Were also collecting any used unwanted digital camera, video cams and related equipment, for our after school program whereby we are teaching children photography skills. 

Any questions please call the LHHV office at 814-241-6123
