PITTSON, LUZERNE CO. (WOLF) — The Colleen Shea Children's Foundation has awarded a $20,000 grant to the United Way of Wyoming Valley. This generous 2-year grant is to help with the expansion of the 'Nurse's Pantry' program so that it can reach every school in the Pittston Area School District.
The purpose of United Way's Nurse's Pantry is to ensure that at-risk students do not miss class.
This program provides various hygiene items, lice treatment kits, shoes, outerwear, undergarments, and other items families may be unable to provide. The United Way's Nurse's Pantry program is currently in 21 school buildings throughout Wyoming Valley.
