Dairy maid, United Way join forces for product giveaways

From staff reports

Kaylee Knapp, the Venango County Dairy Maid, has partnered with the United Way of Venango County to bring three dairy product giveaways to residents of Venango and Forest counties.

Knapp is a Rocky Grove High School student who makes it her mission to promote the dairy industry as she imparts the message of the benefits of whole milk in people’s diets.

The first distribution will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (or as long as supplies last) Friday, May 29, at the Rocky Grove fire hall.

The second distribution will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, June 12, at the Cranberry Mall.

And the third distribution will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, June 26, at Oil City High School.

The first 1,600 households represented at each distribution site will receive a gallon of white milk, 2 pounds of butter, a half-gallon of chocolate milk, a pint of sour cream, cottage cheese, cream cheese and a quart of buttermilk.

Once these supplies are distributed, an additional 960 households can receive 2 gallons of white milk.

There will be a limit of one distribution per household.

People from multiple households who carpool to the distributions will be required to show their identification for proof of residency.

All individuals are asked to stay in their cars and open their vehicle’s trunk to allow volunteers to place the supplies inside.

There are no income restrictions for this program, which is available to anyone living in Venango and Forest counties.

Supplies will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.

No registration is necessary.
