Volunteer groups throughout Lackawanna County made and donated handmade blankets, hats and sweaters to babies and children at Commonwealth Health Moses Taylor Hospital.
Forty-six blankets, of all colors and sizes, along with several hats and sweaters were collected and delivered to the hospital in Scranton. Nurses at Moses Taylor distribute the blankets to newborns or young patients who have to spend time in the hospital due to sickness or injuries.

Students in Marywood University’s organizational behavior class recently held a book drive for the Catherine McAuley Center, Scranton, which provides assistance to women and children in crisis.
An assignment for the class was to read a work of fiction, either a children’s or adult book, and to write a paper relating organizational behavior concepts to the book. The students then chose to donate their books once they completed the assignment, and they also collected additional books from family members and friends.
More than 200 books were collected and donated to the Catherine McAuley Center, which is a safe haven for homeless women and children. As a lifeline for those in need, the McAuley Center remains a vital resource for the greater community. Since its inception in 1984, the McAuley Center has grown dramatically, while its commitment to caring for homeless women and children remains as strong as ever.
