Off The Clock: Phoebe basket social raises money for residents
In its 18th year, the Phoebe Allentown Basket Social raised more than $10,000 to support the Circle of Life fund at Phoebe Allentown. The fund is used to underwrite programming involving children from the local community and special musical events, as well as supporting the care of resident pets, plants and gardens on the Allentown campus. More than 500 people attended the social, buying 74,250 tickets to try to win one of 118 baskets. Phoebe Allentown received 161 donations from local businesses as well as internal departments and neighborhoods that pooled together to create themed baskets.
RCN Lehigh Valley donated 300 items to the Children’s Home of Easton as part of its sixth annual employee sporting goods drive. Donated goods included footballs, volleyballs, hula hoops, gardening supplies and more. Included in the photo are, from the Children’s Home of Easton, Anita Paukovits and Mike Miskevish and, from RCN, Vikkie Harris, Meghan Burke, Kristin Vitovitch, Gino Mercadante and Bryan Jung.
