The foundation is working to assist numerous other projects throughout Greater Hazleton, including:
Sheppton Mine Disaster:The CAN DO Community Foundation sponsored a historical marker at the Sheppton Mine Disaster and Rescue site to commemorate the anniversary of the day two coal miners trapped in a mine cave-in were rescued.
The plaque provided details of the disaster and the then-new technique that was used to drill a borehole and free the miners. David Fellin and Henry “Hank” Throne were rescued on August 27, 1963.
Louis Bova, who had been cut off from the others, was never recovered.
Help us improve the quality of life for the Greater Hazleton community.
