Local man looking to help area youth with school supplies

Anthony Ferguson, joined by friends Elizabeth and David Jiles, will be giving away school supplies to area youth this Saturday at the Sunbury Street playground. Children must be accompanied by a parent to pick up the school supplies. All are welcome.

SHAMOKIN — Anthony Ferguson wants to help underprivileged youth in this community and his mission comes from a very personal place.

Ferguson, who grew up in Philadelphia and now resides in Shamokin, heads a small collective of volunteers who are doing their best to ensure that all local children have school supplies.
