Scranton Prep senior, Isabella Luciani, daughter of Robert and Heather Luciani of Dunmore, has had a lifelong love of reading. Through her various volunteer efforts, she has come to realize that some children are not as fortunate to be surrounded by books like she was as a child.
As a result, she has collected over 700 new and gently used books for children of all ages and donated them to Angel’s Attic, a part of Scranton’s United Neighborhood Centers.
After completing a service project this year with Project Hope, a summer camp for children of low income families also run by UNC, Isabella chose Angel’s Attic because she was inspired by the children she met.
She also liked the fact that children can go and choose their own books.
“I believe if they are able to choose their own book they will be more likely to want to read it.” Luciani said.
United Neighborhood center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping local low-income families.
