  2. Clearfield Revitalization Corp (CRC) in Downtown Clearfield, PA would like your input. Your input will help us know how best to serve the community. What you know about and how you feel about Clearfield and particularly the Downtown Business section as a “sense of place” is the focus of the survey below. Your answers will help the board of directors in determining the planning for coming years. The act of revitalization is just that -- working to bring a “sense of place” and “connectedness to the community”. Ideally, the Clearfield Revitalization Corp’s (CRC) is making its plans and desires to meet the needs of the community in a strategic way. Of course your positive responses would affirm our past actions, but we need to know as well where that “sense of place and community” is still lacking or where in your opinion is absent. Click this link to find the survey: https://reporting.padowntown.org/forms/current-perceptions-of-downtown-clearfield Survey takers that finish and provide contact information will be randomly drawn for a downtown gift card ($30 value).

  4. CLEARFIELD COUNTY AREA AGENCY ON AGING, INC. RECEIVES $5000 FROM MEALS ON WHEELS AMERICA AND PETSMART CHARITIES® TO SUPPORT CLIENTS AND THEIR PETS Funding Will Assist Efforts to Keep Clearfield County Seniors and Their Pets Together Amid the Pandemic and Beyond August 10, 2020 – The Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging, Inc. is proud to announce that it has received a $5000 Meals on Wheels Loves Pets grant through Meals on Wheels America, for its pet support program, “Fur Babies Program”. Funding will be used to provide food, supplies and improved access to care for the pets of Meals on Wheels clients, which can often be a financial and physical challenge for older adults to manage on their own. Also, part of the funding will be used to develop informational brochures on responsible pet ownership and what to know if considering the placement of a pet. This grant compliments and expands the Agency’s recent Animatronic Pet Program, which was implemented to combat loneliness and social isolation for Clearfield County older adults. Through that piece of the Pet Program, 51 animatronic cats and dogs have been paired with older adults facing social isolation, loneliness, depression and dementia. Feedback regarding this outreach has been very positive with one recipient stating “She (an animatronic dog) is a great companion to me. I can talk to her and she will blink her eyes and bark back at me like she really is listening to me. I love her to pieces!” This recipient also stated that other tenants in her building stop by frequently to see the dog as it cheers them up as well. Funding for this current grant was made possible through a partnership with PetSmart Charities, part of Meals on Wheels America’s strategic effort to combat social isolation and loneliness among seniors across the country. This year, PetSmart Charities’ support allowed Meals on Wheels America to grant $354,500 to 98 Meals on Wheels programs through the Meals on Wheels Loves Pets initiative, which ensures that homebound seniors and their animal companions can live happy, healthy lives together. “The companionship a pet offers enhances the physical and mental health and well-being of homebound seniors, which is particularly valuable as so many older adults are feeling even more lonely and isolated amid the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Meals on Wheels America President and CEO Ellie Hollander. “We’re grateful for PetSmart Charities’ ongoing support, which has allowed us to invest Meals on Wheels Loves Pets grants in more local Meals on Wheels programs than ever before. This support will enable CCAAA to provide pet supplies and care to local seniors, making it more feasible for seniors to remain safe and healthy at home with their beloved companions during this public health emergency and beyond.” Anyone interested in learning more about the CCAAA Pet Program is encouraged to contact the Agency at 814-765-2696. ABOUT MEALS ON WHEELS AMERICA Meals on Wheels America is the leadership organization supporting the more than 5,000 community-based programs across the country that are dedicated to addressing senior isolation and hunger. This network serves virtually every community in America and, along with more than two million staff and volunteers, delivers the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks that enable America’s seniors to live nourished lives with independence and dignity.

  11. Not even COVID-19 could stop the annual youth mission trip from Christ Lutheran Church, Sunflower Dr., DuBois. It merely redirected it to a more familiar location, promoting the idea that service can also be practiced locally. For the past six years Rev. Amy Godshall-Miller, co-pastor of Christ Lutheran with her husband, Rev. John Miller, led a youth mission trip to a variety of locations ranging from New York City to Virginia's Eastern Shore to rural Vermont. The 2020 mission trip was intended to visit Louisville, Ky. Then came COVID-19 and YouthWorks, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the organizer of the Christ-centered mission trips cancelled all 2020 trips. But all was not lost. "A combination of the outside of our church needing attention and wanting to do something here led to a stay-at-home mission," said Pastor Amy. Operating with the theme "We love because God first loved us" (I John 4:19), 18 youth and 21 adults gathered for a three-day at-home youth mission trip. The youth participants were: Kamryn Fontaine, Avery Fontaine, Addy Witherite, Emalee Horner, Carson Dombroski, Carter Wilson, Ella Wilson, Madee Finalle, Gabby Horner, Madison Rusnica, Cole Philips, Lauren Hoover, Max Dombroski, Devon London, Derek London, Amber Eberly, Kara Hanslovan and Molly Hanslovan During three days at their home congregation much was accomplished: staining of the cross and lettering on the front of the church; removal of bushes; replacing stones around the building; power washing the entire church including the steeple; window washing; unwrapping new chairs and an equal number of old ones given away; expanding the butterfly gardens; removing lower limbs on all fir trees; constructing bluebird boxes and installing a bluebird path; painting and installing a new mailbox; cleaning up the area behind the education building; painting the cement wall at the end of the education wing along with two outside doors; staining the cross on the education wing; weeding box gardens and all sidewalks; and repainting the yellow safety line around the flag poles. "All of the supplies to do the work and the food were donated," said Pastor Amy about congregational and community support for the mission. Monetary donations were used to purchase food to provide three meals a day. All of the work, along with meals, were held outdoors, meeting COVID-19 social distancing requirements. Most of the youth and four of the adults spent the two overnights in tents on the church property. Devotions preceded each day of service and closed the activities in the evening. Work did not fill all of the day. Games were played at the end of the work day and the mission included a trip to Parker Dam for dinner, swimming, volleyball, and hiking. "Watching our youth work side by side with adults toward a goal was very inspiring," said Pastor Amy. "Some great relationships were built. I couldn't ask for anything more. The mission created many ways and opportunities to serve.” Front row from left: Kamryn Fontaine, Avery Fontaine, Addy Witherite and Emalee Horner.
