Coat Collection Underway to Benefit Friends of the Poor

In the New Year, UNICO National Scranton Chapter will continue to collect slightly used coats as well as donations and gift cards to help the Friends of the Poor. 

The drive recommenced on January 2, as members collect coats, clothing for all , and household items including dishes, silverware, small appliances (slightly used), lamps, etc. 

UNICO’s motto is Service Above Self, and so many members rallied to help many in the community, especially in these trying times. Gail Cicerini is president, UNICO National Scranton Chapter. Friends of the Poor is sponsored by the Congregation of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The agency offers food, clothing and shelter to those in need.
