The Colleen Shea Children’s Foundation recently awarded a two-year grant in the amount of $20,000 to United Way of Wyoming Valley to expand its Nurse’s Pantry program to all schools in the Pittston Area School District. United Way’s Nurse’s Pantry insures that at-risk students don’t miss valuable class time by providing hygiene items, lice treatment kits, appropriate footwear, outerwear and undergarments which families in need often can’t afford. The United Way’s Nurse’s Pantry program is operating in 21 school buildings throughout the Wyoming Valley.
