Friends of the Poor Organizes Food Giveaway for Federal Workers
SCRANTON, Pa. -- The deal to reopen the federal government, and the promise to soon receive back pay, came as a relief to many federal workers here in our area. Friday was supposed to be payday for many of them and local agencies pitched in to provide some help. A food distribution at St. Luke's Church in Scranton came together quickly when Friends of the Poor noticed a new need from federal workers.
