The Commission for Economic Opportunity (CEO) and the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Food Bank, along with several volunteers, are responsible for providing nutrional food to low-income seniors and reducing hunger.
Volunteers have long been an important and integral part of CEO’s mission of providing assistance to the community. The invaluable contributions made by these caring and dedicated individuals are most evident at all of CEO’s “People Helping People” events.
The Luzerne County Young Republicans (LCYRs) is an organization of Republicans between the ages of 18 and 40. The LCYRs was established to attract young people to the Republican Party and to assist the Party in electing qualified candidates. The LCYRs provide opportunities for its members to develop leadership skills, provide community service, increase political awareness and network socially and professionally with other young adults with similar values.
