The Carbon-Schuylkill Industrial Development Corporation has suspended its drive to reach $600,000 until January 10, but contributions and pledges for bonds are still being received at the "Save Our Selves" headquarters in Lansford.
The drive officially ended December 10 with the original goal of $500,000 over-subscribed.
Among the latest contributions received was $120 from John B. O'Donnell of Saudi Arabia, son of the late Edward and Mary Gildea O'Donnell of Coaldale. Mr. O'Donnell is teaching in the Middle East Country.
