Community Progress Council, York County's Community action agency, empowers individuals and families to move toward self-sufficiency and advocate for change to promote community growth. We work with low- and moderate-income people of all ages in York County to examine their current situations and determine how our programs best align with their needs.

Our services don't stop at emergency assistance, but rather create a bridge from crisis to self-sufficiency. By moving beyond stopgaps, our programs provide stability and structure to empower individuals to rise above poverty, identify long-term goals and move themselves toward independence from external assistance.

These volunteers, who are primarily from York County, PA, assist in healthcare at St. Luke's Hospital by performing surgeries, conducting community health screenings, sharing skills and knowledge, organizing and delivering donated medical supplies and equipment, and in identifying ways to support educators in Apam's public schools.

Other volunteers work throughout the year to collect donated medical supplies and equipment, create educational plans, and fund raise.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CF Foundation) is the world's leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis, and nearly every CF-specific drug available today was made possible with our financial support. We are a donor-funded, 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is fully accredited by the Better Business Bureau's (BBB) Wise Giving Alliance program.

The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.

We are in need of volunteers.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Central Pennsylvania's Annual Finest Gala honors men and women who exemplify strong leadership qualities, are active volunteers in their community and excel in their chosen profession. The Finest campaign is designed to spotlight young leaders, ages 21-40, by honoring their professional and charitable accomplishments.

The professional men and women who participate will be given the opportunity to display their community involvement and highlight their professional achievements, while raising funds to help support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  The campaign begins in August with a kick-off party that formally introduces the 2019 Finest Honorees and culminates with an Honoree Finale Gala in November.

As part of their campaign, each Honoree raises a minimum of $2,000 on behalf of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This amazing event is expected to raise more than $90,000 in the fight against cystic fibrosis. The Honoree Finale Gala will be on Saturday, November 9, 2019 from 6-11pm at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey.

For more information on how to become involved as an Honoree or to nominate a young professional, please contact Chris Lunden at or call (717) 671-4000
