Special Thank You Gifts
Throughout the day, we will be thanking some of our donors with special gifts. For example, our 8th donor will be recognized with a Scranton 506 t-shirt because 8 is the number of stories in the new Center for Rehabilitation Education, and our 66th donor will receive a special gift because 66 is the number of bachelor's degrees at The University of Scranton.
