Fall Into Giving
- November 10, 2017
For the past 5 years, Clark has donated to ICCAP’s Power Pack Program: The Power Pack Program provides kid-friendly, nutritious food to hundreds of children across the county who may not have sufficient food over the weekends. Food is discreetly loaded into the backpacks of those at-risk children while they are in class so that when they leave to go home for the weekend they will not go hungry. In August, Clark employees contributed $280.00 to this charity. To find out what other programs the Indiana County Community Action Program offers please visit http://www.iccap.net/.
Our charity for the month of September was AccessAbilities. Donations to AccessAbilities benefit the uniquely abled individuals in our community. AccessAbilities helps them discover their potential, and in some cases, helps them to stay in their homes. This foundation helps individuals gain independence and increases their quality of life through programs like Early Intervention and Personal Assistance Services. Since September of 2011, Clark Metal Products has supported this organization and we are happy to make another charitable gift this year in the amount of $255.00. Resources and information can be found on the Access Abilities website www.accessabilities.org.
In October, Clark Metal will be donating to the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Pittsburgh. The mission of the Susan G. Komen Foundation is to provide funding for research to end breast cancer, and to provide early detection and education to men and women. For resources and information on how to donate, please visit the Susan G. Komen website http://www.komenpittsburgh.org/.
Clark has selected the National Alzheimer’s Association for our November charity. Formed in 1980, the Alzheimer's Association advances research to end Alzheimer's and dementia while enhancing care for those living with the disease. To learn more about the organization or how to donate please visit the Alzheimer’s Association website https://www.alz.org
Employees of Clark Metal raise money each month through lunches and weekly $5 donations to wear jeans on Thursdays. The company matches the dollar amount raised by the employees, and that amount is donated to the charity of the month.
