Plainville VFW Post 574 sponsored a raffle over the summer to benefit the school district’s athletic department, as well as the Plainville Community Food Pantry. Four raffle prizes were awarded, each featuring four box seat tickets to a MLB game at Fenway Park.
On Sept, 11, raffle chairman Dan Dougherty, together with representatives from the VFW, presented checks to Plainville Community Schools and the food pantry.
The donation to the district’s athletic program will be used to provide custom team t-shirts for all Plainville High School and Middle School of Plainville athletes.
The donation to the food pantry will be used for holiday gift baskets for those in need.
