Local artist helps Community Bread Basket
When Savannah Guz drove past the Community Bread Basket located at 3501 West St., Weirton, the local artist said she noticed the deplorable condition of the sign in the front of the building, prompting her to contact CBB board member Jim Pauchnik to ask if she could help. Pauchnik visited Guz at her work place as office manager of Top of West Virginia and discussed the possibility of creating a new sign and providing her with a download of the logo used by CBB. It was created by Weirton native Gregory Poszywak, a graphics artist in Richmond, Texas, and the son of Leonard Poszywak. Guz developed the sign and presented it to the CBB. With the new sign are, from left, Jeanie Montgomery, secretary and treasurer of the board of directors of CBB; Guz; and Pauchnik. Guz, who is from York, Pa., studied history and art and architecture at the University of Pittsburgh and on a Fulbright Scholarship at Ludwig Maxmillians Universitaet in Munich, Germany. She also studied at Juniata College. She and her husband, Michael Guz, reside in Weirton. “This is another example of people stepping up to help feed the hungry,” Pauchnik noted, adding that anyone interested in helping can contact him at (304) 670-8637 or visit CBB at 3501 West St.
