Sea­son of giv­ing

The Hazleton Standard-Speaker - - LOCAL -

Val­ley Santa, a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, pur­chases toys for needy chil­dren through­out Luzerne County for the hol­i­days. The pro­gram is spon­sored by the Stan­dard­Speaker and The Cit­i­zens’ Voice 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 toys for chil­dren whose fam­i­lies need help dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son. The sto­ries pub­lished be­tween now and Christmas are based on let­ters from fam­i­lies seek­ing as­sis­tance. Names have been changed to pro­tect anonymity.
