    3rd Annual Welcoming Scranton Celebration

    September 4, 2019

    United Neighborhood Centers is hosting its 3rd Annual Welcoming Scranton event at Connors Park on Saturday, Sept. 7 from 3:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. This event is part of a movement led by Welcoming America to create more inclusive communities. The University of Scranton will have a table at the event providing an activity for all to share their #ScrantonStory! All ages are welcome.

    Welcoming Week is celebrated annually across the country and now expands to other parts of the world. UNC’s participation in Welcoming Week shows that in the Scranton-area, people of all backgrounds recognize that being a welcoming community makes us stronger economically, socially, and culturally.

    This event brings together long term local residents and those new to the country to promote cross-cultural understanding and raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone.
