In 10 years, CAN DO has touched the lives of hundreds of servicemen and women from the Hazleton area who are serving in the military overseas. On Memorial Day, the economic development organization and its student committee were honored for their support of the military.
Each fall since 2005, CAN DO’s Student Action Committee holds Operation: CAN DO, a drive to collect food, personal hygiene and entertainment products for local military personnel. Items are collected at local schools and businesses, as well as at CAN DO’s office. CAN DO partners with the Freeland American Legion to execute this annual event, with the Legion receiving the items and shipping care packages to military members in time for the holidays.
CAN DO President W. Kevin O’Donnell received the 2014 Distinguished Citizen of the Year award from the Anthracite District of Boy Scouts of America during the organization’s Hazleton Area Friends of Scouting Dinner on Thursday.
The Distinguished Citizen Award recognizes individuals who set a positive example for others and demonstrate selfless concern and care for their communities.
A road closure will be in effect on a portion of Oak Ridge Road in Humboldt Industrial Park next week.
The closure, which will occur Monday, April 28, through Wednesday, April 30, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day, will allow Oak Ridge Road to be milled and paved between Maplewood Drive and the new Cinnamon Oak Road approximately 1,000 feet to the west of the Maplewood Drive intersection.
Park employees are asked to use the western entrance of Oak Ridge Road off Route 924 to access industries located along Oak Ridge Road.
The project is weather dependent.
