Guthrie is pleased to announce its support of a new initiative to help those seeking treatment for substance abuse and addiction to eat healthier, understanding that proper nutrition will assist in successful recovery efforts. Dutch’s Food Stand is located at CASA-Trinity and will provide healthy food to CASA-Trinity clients at risk for food insecurities. Food donations will come from individuals and businesses as well as local farm stands (in season). CASA-Trinity clients may receive food from the food stand while receiving services at CASA-Trinity.
Guthrie employees are encouraged to donate non-perishable items for the food stand during designated weeks each season. During the holiday season, collection bins will be located in the 3 Sumner Lobby in Sayre, Clinic Atrium on the Sayre Campus, and Corning Centerway Lobby, now through December 18th. Volunteers will transport donations to Dutch’s Food Stand for distribution to clients.
“Dutch’s Food Stand” is named after the late father of Ann Domingos, CEO of CASA-Trinity. Dutch was a Korean War Veteran who spent his life giving to those less fortunate. Dutch’s Food Stand is an initiative of the Substance Abuse Regional Association (SARA), which serves New York and Pennsylvania. The SARA, which employees of Guthrie participate in, is a coalition of professionals from New York and Pennsylvania, and has representatives from private and public sector employers. CASA-Trinity serves clients in Bradford and Sullivan counties in Pennsylvania and Tioga County, New York. It provides prevention, education, treatment, referral and recovery services to individuals, families and communities affected by alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
