Thank You, Lackawanna College for your donations. The After School Scholars were Happy and overjoyed with the NEW Backpacks and school supplies! Thank you so much for helping us do greater things here at the Hazleton One Community Center!
Our Youth Outreach members: Communities that Care (CTC) created and painted a mural with the guidance of artists Jason Braun. All that were involved worked numerous hours to accomplish this beautiful peace of art, that just by looking at it inspires unity and acceptance. Our HOPE is that from this mural many more can be created around Hazleton, so that everytime "Hazletonians" take a look at one they feel unified and not alone. Thank you CTC members, and Thank you Jason Braun!
HIP's Playground Grand Opening!
On Thursday June 15 the Hazleton One Community Center had its Grand opening for the Playground that will serve as a recreational facility for all the children involved in our center. The playground was donated by Hazleton Creek Properties LLC, who also donated a complete MAC Computer lab to our center. Our very own Joe Maddon and Frank DeAndrea received and inagurated the playground. Thank you, Mr. William Rinaldi for your support to our cause and center!
The children had a great time enjoying the comedy show Beaver Dreams provided on Wednesday June 14. Some children even stayed behind to talk to the performers, who were very friendly and enthusiastic. Great performance from the Lost & Found Puppets Company!
