United Way Helping Kids Thrive Drive Event

It’s Christmas in July season, and Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre Township has a little gift for guests that help stock supply shelves at local schools.

On Tuesday, July 25th, the ASM Global managed Mohegan Sun Arena will host a hygiene and school supply drive from 10am-2pm outside the NBT Bank Box Office in support of The United Way of Wyoming Valley’s “Helping Kids Thrive Drive”.
