Hospital Collects Gifts For Head Start Children

Children from Luzerne County Head Start will once again have a brighter holiday thanks to employees at Commonwealth Health Wilkes-Barre General Hospital. For the past several years, the hospital has been collecting gifts for the Head Start program which provides comprehensive services to children age birth to 5 and their families in Luzerne and Wyoming counties. This year, employees from the hospital fulfilled the wish lists of 89 children. Staff members from Luzerne County Head Start picked up the gifts at the hospital and will distribute them to each child’s family before the Christmas holiday.
