The Misericordia University Student Nurses Association of Pennsylvania recently donated new and gently used books for families and children involved in parenting programming at Employment Opportunity and Training Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania (EOTC) in Scranton.
Officers in the Misericordia University Student Nurses Association presented Ruth A. Connolly, Ed.D., development director for EOTC, with several boxes of age-appropriate books for the program after conducting an on-campus book drive. EOTC is celebrating 25 years of service to northeastern Pennsylvania. The agency’s Seventh Avenue Center is part of the Pennsylvania Family Center network and serves as a one-stop resource center where children and adults can learn and grow. In addition to EOTC’s parent-child and employment programs, multiple other human services are based at the center, including an Early Head Start program, Dress for Success, Educational Opportunity Centers and Scranton’s Women, Infants & Children program.
