SWOYERSVILLE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A local mayor is giving back to the community that has given to him.
Mayor Christopher Concert of Swoyersville had his first Mayor’s Day of Giving at Roosevelt Field.
Mayor Concert gave out 350 free homemade pasta meals while collecting canned goods and different winter clothes for our veterans.
The mayor is thankful to be able to give back.
“You know the community has been very good to me for many years and I’ve always felt it’s good to give back. You know because when you give, it comes right back around to you. So it’s very important for people to give,” Concert said.
The food items collected will go to the mayor’s food pantry in the Swoyersville Bureau building.
