November Community Collection

Each month, libraries in Lackawanna County promote a local organization and their specific needs at that time.

November’s organization is Friends of the Poor and they are looking for donations of new kids’ pajamas for all ages.

Donations may be made directly to Friends of the Poor at either Jackson Terrace, 148 Meridian Avenue, Scranton, PA 18504 or Valley View Terrace, Building 20, 950 Pear Street, Scranton, PA 18505.

Friends of the Poor sponsors seasonal activities for senior citizens, adults, families and children. Holiday Dinners, Food Baskets for Families, and recreational, educational and historic Field Trips for children are offered throughout the year. Friends of the Poor also coordinates a Furniture Bank. Donations of furniture are received and sorted and made available for distribution. Those in need of furniture may call either pantry.

Please contact Jess Serrenti at with any questions.
