HOUTZDALE – A pajama drive recently benefited the Child Advocacy Center of Clearfield County and the Clearfield County Children, Youth and Family Services Office.
According to District Attorney William A. Shaw Jr., staff members at the State Correctional Institution at Houtzdale participated in the pajama drive as a way to give back to their community.
In total, 143 sets of pajamas were donated to the two organizations, he said. He thanked the staff, adding these donations will help out local children in need.
“When children come into care, many don’t have personal items, such as pajamas,” Shaw said. “These donations will provide comfort to the children who receive them.”
He also said the CAC-CC wouldn’t be possible without the collaboration and support of the Clearfield County Multi-Disciplinary Investigative Team (MDIT) and community members.
Shaw said the team is comprised of representatives from local law enforcement, the District Attorney’s Office, Children, Youth and Family Services, Cen-Clear Child Services, Victim Services Providers and a medical expert.
