MinitMart Purchases Help Greenway

Nittany MinitMart, located at 815 Allegheny St. in Jersey Shore, is the most recent sponsor of the Jersey Shore Public River Access project.

For the entire month of August, Nittany MinitMart will donate a portion of store proceeds to the project.

The historic town of Jersey Shore is located along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River. The town’s location and identity are entwined in its river heritage, yet there is no public access to connect with the rich resources of the river.

The Susquehanna Greenway Partnership is working with the Borough of Jersey Shore, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and other community leaders to develop a safe public river access that offers recreation opportunities for boating, fishing, swimming and sightseeing.

“Residents of Jersey Shore have been interested in getting a good public river access for years,” said Trish Carothers, Susquehanna Greenway Partnership Executive
Director. “Most of the funding for this project has been secured, just $50,000 needs to be raised from the local community to take this project from start to completion. We appreciate the participation of Nittany MinitMart in the fund drive for the public river access.”

Nittany MinitMartFor every gallon of gasoline sold at the Jersey Shore location, Nittany MinitMart will donate one cent to the project fund. Additional proceeds will be obtained through the purchase of select food service items including pizza and smoothies, and through a variety of beverage and snack food items. Supporters are encouraged to visit the store to take advantage of these special promotions, and to participate in exciting prize and giveaway opportunities.
