WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) —The Church on the Square in Downtown Wilkes-Barre held a special Thanksgiving event on Wednesday for the homeless.

A hot lunch was served, and free haircuts and beauty treatments were also offered for those in attendance.

Event organizers were grateful to the numerous volunteers who helped run the event.

“I just want to say thank you to everybody that came. Thanks for the workers that are going to help me out and this is the beginning of something special. I started this with my little cousin. He’s not here right now so I feel you here with us,” said event organizer Sha Range.

The event was sponsored by Wildlife, a religious organization.
