The 2023 holiday season was merry and bright for many families in the Pittston and Wyoming Area districts thanks to the Greater Pittston Santa Squad. Underprivileged children in the Wyoming Valley were thrilled to open presents while the Santa Squad watched, a first for the organization members. Smashing their record for the 5th year in a row, the Greater Pittston Santa Squad collected over 10,000 toys for 1,500+ children.
Diana Worosilla, Sundance Vacations Business Analyst and Greater Pittston Santa Squad Secretary & Distribution Site Manager, provided volunteering Sundance Vacations employees with several of the children’s Christmas wish lists. Sundance Vacations team members Carrie Hausherr and Todd Argenziano also worked closely with the organization to help reduce any burdens on the families during the holiday season.
