Children from Luzerne County Head Start (LCHS) welcomed State Rep. Gerald Mullery, D-Luzerne to the agency’s Nanticoke center. Rep. Mullery sat down for breakfast with the children and read “Say Something” to the group. He presented each teacher with a copy of the book for their classroom. Following the reading, he also donated several bicycle helmets for children to use in the center’s gymnasium. Rep. Mullery participates in LCHS’s Adopt-A-Classroom program. The program is designed to promote community engagement and strengthen the community’s youth by working together. LCHS is an income-based early childhood education program that provides comprehensive services to pregnant women, children birth to age five, and their families in Luzerne and Wyoming Counties.
