Jermyn, Pennsylvania – The Wright Center for Community Health Auxiliary is sponsoring a “Bag of Warmth” Project this winter season to make warm winter clothing items, such as hats, scarves and gloves available to those who may need them. Items have been packaged so they are easily accessible for anonymous pick up by anyone who needs them beginning Monday January 21, 2019. The “Bags of Warmth” can be found at The Wright Center for Community Health Mid Valley Practice (5 South Washington Avenue, Jermyn, PA) as well as the Lackawanna County Courthouse Square in downtown Scranton (200 North Washington Avenue Scranton, PA).

Led by Auxiliary President Gerri McAndrew, collection boxes for anyone who would like to make a donation have been placed in all of The Wright Center for Community Health practices and administrative office locations. If you are interested in donating items or making a monetary donation, please contact Gerri at 570-267-4199.
