There are a lot of great organizations to volunteer with or donate to in Pittston. Here at Joyce, Jackman & Bell Insurors, we very strongly believe in giving back to the community that has given us so much. So we thought this week we would give you a few ideas of places in our area that would love your support!
The Greater Pittston YMCA – The YMCA has a great mission, to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, race or income has the same opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. If you feel the same, you can donate your time by volunteering with the Greater Pittston YMCA. You can volunteer within the programs themselves, as a fundraiser, with special events or as a member of the board. Learn more here.
Volunteer at the West Pittston Library – Libraries in general are a great place, especially if you love books as much as we do. The West Pittston Library isn’t far from our office here at JJB, and that means we’ve spent more than our fair share of time there. We know that they are always looking for volunteers. To volunteer with the West Pittston Library, fill out the form here.
Donate to the Pittston Area Educational Improvement Organization – Do you have children in the Pittston Area School District? Do you appreciate the level of support they receive and the education programs that they are apart of? Much of that is a product of the Pittston Area Educational Improvement Organization (PAEIO), which supports research based methodologies and teaching practices. Learn more about PAEIO by clicking here.
Miles for Michael – Addressing the needs of local cancer patients and their families, Miles for Michael Fund provides support for unexpected expenses such as travel, lodging, food, and gas. Our team here at Joyce, Jackman & Bell Insurors helped support this cause by participating in the Softball Tournament. This year a total of $18,552 was raised to help support families battling cancer. To learn more about Miles for Michael and what you can do to support this cause click here.
