Brewser's, CSO join forces to help kids stay warm
COAL TOWNSHIP - Brewser's Sports Grille is again partnering with Central Susquehanna Opportunities Inc., (CSO) Community Action Agency to sponsor the "Keep Our Kids Warm" program, which provides outerwear and blankets to kids in need in the Shamokin and Mount Carmel areas.
Brewser's will donate $1 from each bill of more than $20, starting Monday.
Brewser's Sports Grille and CSO began the program in 2010. The goal is to improve the well-being of children by ensuring they stay warm during the winter months.
Through the use of a needs assessment survey regularly administered by CSO, low-income residents throughout the area have consistently listed heating assistance as one of their highest needs.
The program needs have increased drastically since 2010. Last year, 84 children were assisted.
Families in need are asked to complete a "wish list" form, which can be obtained at CSO's Community Action Agency, 2 E Arch St., Room 307, Shamokin, or by calling 570-644-6575 ext. 171 through Dec. 16.
