Safety Reminder

⚠️ Protect your personal information! ⚠️The Community Action Partnership of Lancaster County has learned of a scam targeting WIC participants and are urging customers not to disclose personal information over the phone without verifying the identity of the caller.

Although WIC does perform eligibility determinations, we will never call participants to request bank account information to deposit funds directly into an account. If a WIC participant is unsure if a request for information is legitimate, please contact WIC at 717-509-3686.
