12.06.19 | Traci Lynn Woolsey

The shuttering of UPMC Sunbury means over 150 people will lose their jobs.

Degensein Library Director Melissa Rowse tells Family Life News says while the news is a blow, she hopes for a Christmas miracle in the form of someone purchasing the campus, to provide future jobs for the area.

The library and the local Career Link are offering help to employees looking for new positions.

Career Link's Jamie Mercaldo says that includes resume writing and mock job interviews.

By the time of its slated closure in March, the hospital will have served the community for 125 years.
