SCRANTON — Members of the Lackawanna College Student Government Association (SGA) recently donated $610 to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Funds were raised through a basket raffle held during the College’s annual homecoming festivities.
The Children’s Advocacy Center is a private, non-profit, charitable organization whose mission is to provide excellence in the assessment and treatment of child abuse and neglect. In 2012, the Center provided services to 1,107 children and, according to Executive Director Mary Ann LaPorta, has already served more children and families so far in 2013.
Members of SGA at Lackawanna College chose the CAC as the beneficiary of their fundraiser because they strongly support the CAC’s mission. The group has focused their Fall 2013/Spring 2014 community service efforts solely on the CAC.
