Help hungry students


— NORTHUMBERLAND --  Unitarian Universalist Church of the Susquehanna Valley is hosting an "Afternoon at the Casino" event from 2-6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9. Money raised at the event will benefit the Chief Shikellamy Caring Community Project.

This organization is working very hard to help local children in need by sending them home with backpacks full of food for the weekend. Some area teachers have reported that they notice children coming to school obviously hungry on Monday mornings. The church hopes to help make a difference and contribute to this great cause.

The congregation is located at 265 Point Township Drive (Rioute 11) in Northumberland. Admission is $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
