The Lackawanna County Commissioners presented a $50,000 donation to support the annual Toys For Tots Drive. Due to the economic hardships created by the COVID 19 pandemic, this gift will help to deliver smiles, hope and Santa to children during the holiday season.

The Lackawanna County Commissioners presented representatives from the Deutsch Institute with a $25,000 grant award check for the agency to use for general operations and activities and services for its consumers.
