The Hazleton Standard-Speaker - - LOCAL / WEATHER - — DENISE ALLABAUGH

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.
