CURWENSVILLE – Campaign Chair Debbie Bowser recently delivered books from the Clearfield Area United Way Reading Ripples Project to St. Timothy’s Pre-School Director Jill Test as part of the upcoming National Day of Action.
“There is no such thing as a wrong day to give back. Each year, United Way [agencies] participate in a nationwide day of service called Day of Action. It’s the perfect way to show, by example what it means to Live United,” stated Bowser.
According to her, the National Day of Action focuses on giving to charity or items for others. She said, “It’s everyone’s intention to improve lives in measurable and lasting ways by mobilizing the caring power of thousands of people in area communities.”
Bowser said that gently used books are collected for “Reading Ripples” to be coordinated, processed and distributed by the CAUW. She said that by helping the United Way, it helps so many other important agencies that touch lives from infants to the elderly throughout eastern, southern and central Clearfield County.
Tax deductible donations can also be made to the CAUW, 18 N. Second St., P.O. Box 1430, Clearfield, PA 16830. Information about the CAUW and its programs is available by calling 814-765-6521.
Bowser added, “We have another 100 children’s books available currently if we get a call. We would be glad to deliver them to groups of children who love to read.”
