Boscov’s to host fundraising event
Boscov’s will host Friends Helping Friends, a community fundraising event, on Oct. 17 from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. in all 45 stores, including those at Laurel Mall in Hazle Twp., and in Wilkes-Barre, Scranton and Pottsville.
Community service agencies and schools have been invited to participate. Boscov’s has provided participating groups and organizations with shopping passes, which they have been selling for the past few months.
Each shopping pass is $5 and good for 25 percent off purchases that day. Organizations selling the shopping passes keep the $5 ticket price.
On Friends Helping Friends Day, shoppers will enjoy savings, refreshments, entertainment, samplings and prizes.
Last year, Friends Helping Friends raised more than $600,000 for charitable organizations.
