CLEARFIELD – Clearfield County District Attorney, William A. Shaw, Jr., announced receipt of a donation to the Child Advocacy Center of Clearfield County (CAC-CC).

Shaw reported that Girl Scout Troop 41997 from Houtzdale made a donation of Girl Scout Cookies to the Child Advocacy Center.

Shaw explained that the Girl Scouts from Troop 41997 have been collaborating with the CAC-CC to help increase awareness of Child Abuse Prevention for two consecutive years.  Troop 41997 first became involved with the CAC-CC last year when they began working on their “Bronze Award,” which is a great honor to earn for Girl Scouts.

This year, the Girl Scouts donated Girl Scout Cookies.  Shaw explained that when a Girl Scout sells Girl Scout Cookies there is a space on the sales form for donations of cookies called “Gift of Caring”.   These “Gifts of Caring” are then donated to the organization of the Girl Scout Troop’s choice. Troop 41997 selected to donate their Girl Scout Cookies to the CAC-CC for use when children victims visit the center.

Shaw thanked the Girl Scouts from Troop 41997 for their generous donation and continued support of the CAC-CC
