NeighborWorks of NEPA Partner with University of Scranton for Light the Town!


On Saturday, April 22, 2017 NWNEPA staff and University of Scranton volunteers will be installing free, solar-powered exterior security lights throughout the Hill section neighborhood as part of their ongoing project, "Light the Town." These lights will help improve community safety by lighting up dark streets and alleyways at night.

To qualify for a solar light, you must own your home, be present during the light installation, and show proof of current homeowners insurance. If you are a renter, but interested, please have the property owner apply. All interested residents must apply by April 5, 2017.

To apply, contact Pamela Anslinger and provide your contact information as well as the location on the light. She can be reached at or 570-558-2490. For more information, check out their flyer and waiver.
