Frederick J. Stellato, a Member of law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A., has been unanimously elected to the Advisory Board of Second Harvest Food Bank of the Lehigh Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania.
“The problem with hunger in our country has always been a big concern of mine, especially hunger among children. I believe in giving back to the community in which you work, live, and play, and helping those in need. Second Harvest is a wonderful organization that does just that. I am so honored to be a part of this hard-working and dedicated group and look forward to doing all I can with them,” said Stellato.
