State Police Coat Drive Benefits Head Start

Luzerne County Head Start received dozens of coats, hats, mittens and blankets as part of the Pennsylvania State Police’s “Coats for the Community” initiative. Froggy 101, a country music radio station in northeast PA, collected the winter clothing for children and families at LCHS. State Police delivered the donation to Luzerne County Head Start’s Beekman Street office in Wilkes-Barre. The winter clothing and blankets will be distributed by Head Start employees to children and their families who need a little extra help this winter. LCHS provides early childhood education and comprehensive services to qualified children age birth through 5 and their families in Luzerne and Wyoming counties.
