Sea­son of giv­ing

The Citizens' Voice - - Local -

Val­ley Santa, a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, pur­chases toys for needy chil­dren through­out Luzerne County for the hol­i­days. The pro­gram is spon­sored by The Cit­i­zens’ Voice and Stan­dard-Speaker news­pa­pers, Boscov’s Depart­ment Store, M&T Bank and the City of Wilkes-Barre. Val­ley Santa ac­cepts mone­tary do­na­tions from the com­mu­nity and uses the funds to pur­chase new toys for lo­cal chil­dren whose fam­i­lies need help dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son. The sto­ries pub­lished here daily be­tween now and Christ­mas are based on ac­tual let­ters re­ceived from fam­i­lies seek­ing as­sis­tance. Names of the let­ter writ­ers have been changed to pro­tect anonymity of fam­i­lies.
