Finishing the Fight will once again send Halloween to the deployed men and women in Afghanistan, South Korea, and Saudi Arabia, since they won’t be home to enjoy the festivities with their families. The organization is accepting donations of Halloween treats, with the exception of chocolate, as well as handmade cards from children.

Donations can be made at the following locations until Oct. 6:

  • Alo’ Me Salon, 271 Scranton Carbondale Highway, Dickson City
  • Betty Brite Cleaners, 1564 Main St., Peckville
  • Hopscotch Children’s Boutique, 201 Church St., Jessup
  • Twisted Scissors Beauty Salon, 310 Lackawanna Ave., Olyphant

Those who have a deployed loved one are invited to give the name and address to be put on the monthly packaging list. For more information, contact Angel Lubeck at 570-614-6341 or visit
