SCRANTON, PA – The Little Sisters of the Poor held a Veterans Day tribute service in honor of all of the men and women who reside at Holy Family Residence that served in the United States military. The event included a reading of each honoree’s service record accompanied by musical interludes of patriotic songs.
The Little Sisters, who have been serving Northeastern Pennsylvania since 1908, work closely with staff, volunteers, and benefactors in creating a family spirit for the residents. They welcome the elderly who have limited funds and provide for their needs so they can live their last years in an atmosphere of respect, dignity, and love.
