DANVILLE, Pa. – To thank local veterans for their service to our country, Geisinger served more than 2,300 meals during drive-through Veterans Appreciation dinners at nine locations across its service area on Wednesday, Nov. 10. The dinners for U.S. military veterans and guests were provided at no cost to participants.

Meals were provided in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Danville, Bloomsburg, Shamokin, Jersey Shore, State College and Lewistown. While the event is traditionally a sit-down meal, it was served in a drive-through format for the second year in a row due to safety precautions in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“It is important to honor and recognize our military veterans and we were happy to do so this year in a way that kept everyone safe,” said U.S. Army veteran Chris Grill, program manager of Military and Veterans Affairs at Geisinger. “This event gave us an opportunity to thank our local veterans for all they have done to protect the freedoms we enjoy.”
