Making a Difference in the Lives of Homeless Families

Organizations throughout our community make a difference every day in the lives of the homeless families of the Catherine McAuley Center. From schools and parishes to civic associations and scout troops, the people of our community coordinate donation drives on behalf of our families to ensure they have the provisions they need to transition from homelessness to independence, dignity, and hope.
The members of the Grand Chapter of Pennsylvania Order of the Eastern Star support the work of many charitable organizations. This year’s special project is OES Harmony Express, an initiative designed for children who need extra love and support. Members of five local OES Chapters assembled children’s play kits filled with an array of different games and activities. They delivered 18 of these special activity sets, along with stuffed animals, books, and puzzles, to the Catherine McAuley Center in Scranton.
The Telecom Pioneers collected non-perishable food items, paper products, and cleaning supplies on behalf of the families of the Catherine McAuley Center as part of their Make a Difference initiative.
