Clearfield Giving Trees collect 389 tags, $14,000 in heating payments with your help!

Clearfield, PA – The Clearfield Borough Police Department and the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging, Inc. (CCAAA) partnered again this year to create “Giving Trees” for area elderly, collecting gifts for 389 people and more than $14,000 towards heating bills with your help!

Elderly citizens in the Clearfield and DuBois area, many of them living alone with no close family members or no family at all, benefited from the generosity of our small community. CCAAA and the Clearfield Borough Police also distributed tags for the grandchildren of our CSP (Caregiver Support Program). We have several seniors that are now caring for their grandchildren, and don’t have the extra funds to buy them Christmas gifts.

Many individuals and organizations came together to provide truckloads of gifts and financial assistance for heating and medical needs. A total of 389 tags were distributed for our local elderly and grandchildren of seniors that are caring for them. More than $14,000 was collected and sent directly to local fuel & utility suppliers to ensure our frail and elderly stay warm in their own homes this winter.

The Police Department and the Area Agency on Aging teamed up with Clearfield Pharmacy, CVS of Clearfield, and South Side Subs of Curwensville to host the trees. The employees of CNB Bank had their own tree and collected internally.
