DANVILLE, Pa. – To thank local veterans for their service, Geisinger served about 2,900 meals during drive-through veteran appreciation dinners at 11 locations across its service area on Thursday, 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, Pittston, Danville, Bloomsburg, Shamokin, Jersey Shore, Muncy, State College, Mifflintown and Lewistown. This year marked the 20th anniversary for the event in Bloomsburg, where it originated before expanding across Geisinger’s service area.

“It was an honor and privilege to serve about 2,900 veterans and their guests this year,” 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’ve done to protect the freedoms we enjoy.”
