Head Start Receives Donation for Good Neighbor Day

September 24, 2019

Luzerne County Head Start’s Pre-K Counts center, located inside Church of Christ Uniting, Kingston, recently received a $250 donation from Community Bank as part of National Good Neighbor Day.  National Good Neighbor Day is celebrated annually on Sept. 28 as a day of gratitude and community building.  LCHS was among several local nonprofits that benefited from this community initiative.  In addition to the donation, a representative from the Wyoming Ave., Kingston branch of Community Bank dropped off school supplies and children’s books for each boy and girl in the classroom. Good Neighbor Day was proclaimed a national day by President Jimmy Carter in 1978 to raise public awareness that good neighbors help achieve human understanding and build strong, thriving communities.
