500 Stockings Full of Candy Delivered to Children with Special Needs

500 Stockings Full of Candy Delivered to Children with Special Needs

Pennsylvania union members were busy this holiday as they continued a 40-year tradition of filling stockings with sweet treats for children with special needs. 

The Greater Wilkes-Barre Labor Council’s Community Services Committee, in cooperation with United Way of Wyoming Valley’s Labor Participation Department, conducts two Christmas projects every year. The first is the stocking project for children in the area who receive a variety of services from five different United Way member agencies (Children’s Service Center, Wyoming Valley Children’s Association, Catholic Social Services, Family Service Association and Domestic Violence Service Center). The second project is providing Christmas food for long-term unemployed union members.
