We recently collected much-needed supplies for Lackawanna County veterans.

In celebration of Veterans Day and a flag dedication ceremony, the Chamber donated the supplies to the Gino J. Merli Veterans’ Center and the St. Francis Commons Veterans’ Shelter. Items collected included tissues, stamps, puzzles, gift cards for local restaurants, dishwashing detergent, calendars and more.
