CLEARFIELD – The Community Guidance Center recently received a grant from the Clearfield County Charitable Foundation for a collaborative project between the Clearfield Area Junior-Senior High School and Community Guidance Center’s Drug and Alcohol program.
The Bison Outreach Project involves student volunteers who will help distribute drug and alcohol treatment information at Bison sporting events.
“The Bison Outreach Project coordinated between the Community Guidance Center and the Clearfield Area School District is the exact type of project the Clearfield County Charitable Foundation looks to support with funding,” said Mark B. McCracken, the foundation’s executive director.
“It meets the goals of the Charitable Foundation to support projects that will better the community overall and, even more importantly, the involvement of young people in this positive project is what is needed to build our next generation of community leaders.”
