The Sunday Dispatch donated $1,022 to the Care and Concern Free Health Clinic and the Greater Pittston Food Pantry last week. Gloria Blandina and Peggy Burke of Care and Concern Ministries accepted the donation.

The cash was raised from donations accepted at the Sunday Dispatch’s Pittston Tomato Festival booth. For a $1, patrons spun a prize wheel. Prizes included a limited editon Tomato Festival t-shirt, a latest edition of our die-cast toy vehicle fleet (this year was a black Ford F-150), lottery tickets, hipster sunglasses, tote bags, measuring tapes and magic cups.
