Watch A Hug From The Hilltowns Featuring Jean Guarino

When the pandemic closed BKW, Jean asked, “Who’s going to feed the kids for lunch?” She stepped right up to co-found A Hug From the Hilltowns food pantry which delivered food to those in the hilltowns who are in need.

Jean is an army veteran, mom, wife and dedicated member of our town. She volunteers much of her time to help wherever she can.

My volunteer efforts are just as varied as my professional ones. It’s something that’s always been in my veins.

She currently is a Deacon and Council President at Helderberg Evangelical Lutheran Church and has worked as the Town of Berne Youth Director in addition to volunteering at many other places in our town.
