Tuscarora Wayne Mutual Foundation
The Year in Review
The Foundation continues to serve its mission of “Serving the Underserved”. This year as we struggled through state shutdowns in the spring of 2020 and continue to struggle with restrictions related to the COVID-19 Pandemic we set out to fulfill our mission to combat food insecurity. Under normal conditions one in eight Pennsylvanians are at risk of hunger and for children it is one in six. We noticed longer lines at local food banks during the pandemic and we set out to donate the much needed funds to as many food banks and pantries as we could.
The combined account portfolio through November 30, 2020 contains $4,250 in cash, $84,964 in equities and $1,273,581 in mutual funds for a total of $1,362,795.
A special thank you to Stephanie Keiser, treasurer and corporate secretary of the foundation, for her continued support.

Wyalusing, Pennsylvania, April 10, 2020-With the Coronavirus Pandemic shaking families to their core, physically, emotionally and economically – the need to combat food insecurity is more critical than ever.
The Tuscarora Wayne Mutual Foundation recognizes the urgency and has taken a position on the front lines by fast-tracking financial support to Food Banks throughout our region. “Meeting real needs in the communities we serve has been our mission since the inception of our Foundation,” states Shelby Napoli, President and Chief Executive Officer.
Born from the Tuscarora Wayne Group of Companies, whose roots date back to 1874, the Tuscarora Wayne Mutual Foundation stands on the shoulders of those early pioneering founders who came together to protect and serve their neighbors. Their legacy lives on.
“No kid should ever face an empty fridge,” states Jay W. Chadwick, Chairman of the Board. “We invite everyone to join us in this unprecedented time of need by making a contribution today at your local volunteer food bank.”
The Tuscarora Wayne Mutual Foundation is a registered 501(c) (3). The Lebanon Mutual Insurance Company, who joined our group of companies in 2010, is credited with forming the Foundation in 1983.
