In March, the small borough of Osceola Mills in Clearfield County was startled by charges filed against a local couple.
Aaron Mills, 32, and Stephanie McGuire, 22, were charged with abusing their three-week-old baby, who police say suffered two broken legs, a cracked rib, lacerations, abrasions and tearing.
The community responded with a vigil in March, but the support didn’t stop there.
On Saturday, a fundraising event will spotlight child abuse by building financial support for the Children’s Miracle Network through Geisinger.
From 2 to 7 p.m. at the Columbia Fire Company hall, 140 Curtin St., there will be a spaghetti dinner, a paddle party, a silent auction and a bake sale. T-shirts and car decals will be sold, along with tickets for a bike raffle and a lottery basket drawing.
There will also be a DJ and kid-centered activities, such as games and crafts.
The event falls at the end of Child Abuse Awareness Month.
