Helping Hands: Centre Region groups assist Philipsburg Community Action’s Christmas drive

Central Pennsylvania Community Action, Inc. provides many services to families and individuals throughout Centre and Clearfield counties from its offices in Clearfield, Philipsburg, Houtzdale, Bellefonte and Aaronsburg. One of those services includes an annual Christmas program hosted in December by Philipsburg Community Action. Preparation and planning for the program begins in early fall, and the organization starts to accept names in early November.

A number of organizations pulled together to make the PCA’s 2014 Christmas program possible through donations and volunteer hours:

The 2014 Philipsburg Christmas program served close to 200 families with a Christmas basket and a meat voucher or turkey and almost 150 children with toys, hats, gloves, scarves and coats. CPCA would like to thank all of the organizations that contributed to the Christmas program. As always, CPCA continues to strive to meet our mission “strengthening communities in Centre and Clearfield counties by helping families and individuals to become self-sufficient.”
