Fundraiser planned to help Dissinger family
SHAMOKIN - With the help of local fire companies, Northumberland County Commissioner Vinny Clausi has organized a fundraiser to help the Dissinger family.
Representatives of Shamokin and Coal Township fire companies will go door to door in those communities from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday to collect money.
The effort has been endorsed by the Coal Township Board of Commissioners and Shamokin City Council, Clausi said.
Clausi said he will match up to $10,000.
The commissioner has been touched by the tragedy, in which an April 3 fire killed three of Christine A. Dissinger's sons and destroyed their home near Snydertown.
