Clearfield United Way at 89 percent of goal
Friday, November 23, 2012
Clearfield Area United Way announces that, as of Tuesday, $217,676,62 has been collected in the annual Community Campaign, brining the total to 89 percent of the $245,000 goal to help 25 local member agencies. Those agencies are located throughout eastern, southern and central Clearfield County. Still needed to reach the goal is $27,324, which will fill the thermometer placed at the Clearfield County Courthouse plaza. CAUW is hoping to exceed the goal this year, as the need is greater than ever.
CAUW volunteers will be contacting companies and individuals in the next few weeks in order to exceed the goal. The next report luncheon will be held Dec. 11.
"We hope, that with the holidays approaching, maybe that someone who has not yet given, will make a tax-deductible donation to the CAUW at 18 N. Second St., Clearfield, PA 16830. You can make a donation in honor of someone for the holidays or in memory of someone and we will send a nice card to the individual or their family," said Ranea Brewer, campaign chairwoman.
United Way has a website at www.clearfieldareaunitedway.org for residents to check out the new Familywize Prescription Program that is a free service from United Way. Also, CAUW is so appreciative if someone would like to include them in their will or to make a legacy gift before the end of the year to their named fund. More information about any of those items can be had by calling 765-6521.
Recently, CAUW has teamed up with Ashley Freeman of Erhard, who is a student at Mount Aloysius College.
Freeman has been collecting early grade school reading material for children as part of her college service project. The books are being donated to various children and family agencies within United Way.
"We can't thank Miss Freeman and Mount Aloysius enough for helping to help others through this innovative program," said campaign Vice Chairwoman Michele Fannin.
