UNC to Host International Dinner and Celebration

United Neighborhood Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania (UNC) is excited for the return of our International Dinner and Celebration held during National Volunteer Week on Thursday, April 25, 2024, from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm at our Oppenheim Center for the Arts, 1004 Jackson Street in Scranton. UNC welcomes all media outlets to cover this culturally diverse showcase of our growing Community Education Department programming.

The international potluck festivity highlights our students, their accomplishments, and recognizes our volunteers for their incredible work and dedication. Students and their families will share culinary dishes specific to their native countries, and enjoy arts and crafts, music, remarks, and presentation of certificates of achievement.

There will be special emphasis on the students who recently obtained their United States citizenship. Remarks will also be made by Lisa Durkin, UNC President and CEO; and Terilynn Brechtel, UNC Director of Community Education. Both will be available for interviews during the event.
