    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. There will be many more special gifts given out, so make sure to stay tuned throughout the day to find out if you are a lucky donor!
