A bill has been introduced in Washington known as the Senior Scams Prevention Act to train company employees to help stop financial frauds and scams befallen upon many seniors. They hope to establish a federal advisory council to develop educational materials on how to “spot a scam.”

STEP is collecting mittens, gloves, scarves, hats and winter apparel for Head Start children until December 14. Their goal is to collect 700 pairs of mittens, up from 600 of last year.

Donations will be on display throughout the collection period. Questions can be directed to Jaime Fryer at 570-601-9613.
