Wyoming Seminary student government participates in Thanksgiving basket project

Members of the Wyoming Seminary student government participated in the annual Thanksgiving basket project, a school tradition for 44 years. Fundraising appeals were sent to students, parents, faculty and staff and student government members solicited donations at the school’s Thanksgiving chapel. More than $1,000 was raised, funding dinners for five local families and a large donation to the St. Vincent DePaul Kitchen, Wilkes-Barre. Families from Mountain Top, Kingston, Exeter and Wilkes-Barre were identified by the Visiting Nurses Association. Senior government officers Sean Banul and Renata O’Donnell and junior officer Siobhan Brier organized the project.
