Warm Wishes Campaign

Caring Communities and other members of the Hazleton Inter-Agency Council are teaming up to collect warm weather accessories for those who are unhoused or in need of some extra help this winter. We are looking to collect scarves, hats, and gloves throughout January to be distributed in February. We will be distributing them in late-winter to help those who might not have gotten what they needed around the holidays. Donation bins will be located in our own offices (Wilkes-Barre and Hazleton), as well as the offices of other Hazleton IAC members.

If you would like to donate, you can visit one of the locations below: Caring Communities, Wilkes-Barre OfficeCaring Communities, Hazleton…
