Paris Companies Helps With Christmas For Youth At Pentz Run

Paris Companies Helps With Christmas For Youth At Pentz Run

The story begins in May 2017, when Paris heard through the grapevine that Pentz Run Youth Services, Inc., a non-profit agency providing group home residency and emergency shelter for local adolescents, was in need of linens for the 18 beds in its facilities. Not coincidentally, Paris, the area’s largest provider of linen management services for hospitals and other health care organizations, maintains a large inventory of bed linens to service its customers. Paris has a long record of helping local organizations in need. Consequently, a gift of 36 sets of linens was made and graciously received by Pentz Run staff and residents.

This proved to be just the start of a story with a heart-warming page two as the Christmas season approached. Christmas provided another opportunity for Paris and Pentz Run to team up. Youth at Pentz Run are living away from home for certain reasons; some for shorter periods, some for longer. Paris inquired about making a monetary donation and subsequently presented a check to help fill in the Christmas lists of some of the kids that might be going without.

The smiles on the faces in the photograph tell it all. Lightening the burdens of others fills the heart with charity, the soul with love, and the world with hope. Shown (L to R) at the presentation ceremony: Brook Morgan and Shelby Volosky, Residential Managers; Manda Shaw, Executive Assistant to the CEO of Paris Companies; Deb Gregori, Executive Director of Pentz Run; and Sharon Engle, Human Services and Marketing, Paris Companies.

Pentz Run, in DuBois, PA, provides a residential program for at-risk and disadvantaged youth, and currently has facilities with 18 beds. Its mission is to provide a safe, secure, nurturing environment for male and female youth that require short or long-term alternatives to family living. Here, residents begin putting their lives in order; enabling them to make worthwhile contributions, not only to their familys, peers, community and society, but to themselves also.
