SCRANTON – Cards for Charity recently raised $2,600 for the Little Sisters of the Poor at Holy Family Residence. The successful fundraiser took place at the organization’s annual card party on Tuesday, Aug. 9, at the Elmhurst Country Club.
The fundraising party included a luncheon followed by an afternoon of bridge, mahjong, pinochle, and dominos along with a basket raffle and pleasant conversation. The Little Sisters also sold their famous scones and cookies.
All proceeds will be used by the Little Sisters to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual health services to the residents entrusted to their care.
