Representatives from the Pittston City St. Patrick’s Parade Committee recently visited the main Allied Services Scranton campus. They were there to present a donation of $1,000 to benefit patients with disabilities, life-changing injuries and chronic illness served by the non-profit health system. The funds were raised through an annual race, the Leprechaun Loop, hosted by the committee on the morning of the city’s annual St. Patrick’s Parade. The committee also selected Allied Services and the WNEP Ryan’s Run campaign as the 2020 race beneficiaries. The fifth annual Leprechaun Loop will take place at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 7. The mostly flat, 1-mile course takes runners and walkers of all ages through downtown Pittston. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. on race day at the YMCA. “It’s a really fun atmosphere at the race,” said committee member Tiffany Ferrentino. “The town is decorated for the parade and everyone is there to have a good time. Many of our runners and walkers turn up in head-to-toe St. Patrick’s Day costumes and are very serious about competing for the costume awards. At the end of the day, we have fun and raise vital funds for a local charity that helps so many in our community.” From left, are Sarah Donahue, Tina Rava, Charlotte Wright, Angeline Ferrentino and Tiffany Ferentino.
