The Christmas Holiday Bureau opened Nov. 12 for scheduling of interviews. The Christmas Holiday Bureau helps families with children residing in Lackawanna County that meet eligibility requirements. Families seeking holiday assistance are asked to call 504.0244 for information and to schedule an interview. The phones lines will be available through Nov. 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays. Interviews by appointment only will be conducted in Scranton and Carbondale. Wal-Mart gift cards will once again be distributed to eligible applicants for holiday assistance.
The Christmas Holiday Bureau is a program of the Voluntary Action Center, a United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties Partner Agency, and has been providing holiday assistance to families for 62 years.
