Poverty in Williamsport

July 29, 2008

I think a lot about poverty. It seems to me that there should be a way for everyone to a least have a decent standard of living. There will always be rich, and there will always be “poor”, but everyone could conceivably have a job and earn enough to put food on the table and shelter over their families’ heads.

Check out the demographics of Williamsport. 13.7% of families are living below the poverty line, which is probably about $22,000.

What is the most effective way to help these people?

If you had a million dollars to invest in improving Williamsport, where would you put it?

    I love that you have a heart for this stuff man. I need to get you in contact with Amy’s company. If they had the publicity nd connections, they can provide villages with clean water for less then $50. Its amazing. I’ll see what i can find…you might even be able to help her!a
