Details of Special Initiative to be Announced Wednesday

 The task force that came together to coordinate the outpouring of good will following the February, 2011, gas explosion in Allentown has organized a volunteer-based effort to assist Lehigh Valley residents whose homes were damaged by the “superstorm” that disrupted the region the week of October 29.  The effort, custom-made to respond to the storm’s damage to homes, will be described in detail at a press conference scheduled for Wednesday, November 14, at 11 AM in the 911 Center operated by Northampton County Emergency Management Services located at 100 Gracedale Avenue in Nazareth.

Participating in the announcement will be representatives of Northampton County Emergency Management Services, CACLV, the volunteer coordinator of the project and, representing the donors, ESSA Bank.
