Wellsboro was named one of the best small towns in Pennsylvania by several sources, including MSN, Uncovering PA, PennLive, and Planet Ware.
Each year, thorough their Giving Back, Giving Together (GBGT) program, C&N partners with local organizations to support different causes. Recently, GBGT turned its focus to Fighting Hunger. Millions of people now face financial strain as a result of the economic impacts associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Many are now relying on food banks for sustenance. As consumer demand has placed constraints on supply chains, fewer donations are reaching the food banks, causing uncertainty for those who depend on them. To make matters worse, many of the volunteers who pack and distribute food are seniors who are particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus. Food banks need our help now more than ever.
Please join us in this year’s quest to Fight Hunger through the support of 19 local food banks and backpack programs. Each C&N office is partnered directly with one of these local organizations, which means every dollar raised through Giving Back, Giving Together stays local and helps your neighbors in need.

C&N’s Giving Back, Giving Together community fundraising campaign was formed in March of 2015. C&N teammates believed that they could make a positive and lasting impact on our local communities by supporting a specific cause each year. As an employee-driven effort, this program has provided C&N with an opportunity to make a lasting impression on our communities, but the magnitude of its impact was a very pleasant surprise. In all, our team members have raised $449,852 in monetary donations, collected 29,066 item donations and volunteered 1,040 hours of their own time.
“With the support of our teammates and community members, we've provided over 352,000 meals for local families who rely on food banks to eat. Although this year has been particularly challenging, our teams have found creative ways to provide support and hope during this time, including online fundraisers like this one. We appreciate the engagement from our community members to support our passion for making a difference in our communities,” said Caitlin Hilliard, C&N’s Giving Back, Giving Together program coordinator.
