CLEARFIELD- Clearfield County District Attorney, William A. Shaw, Jr., announced today that the Child Advocacy Center received a donation from the efforts of two ambitious children.

Shaw thanked Claire Smyers-North, age 8 of Glasgow and Brayden Rydbom, age 7 of Flinton for their hard work at raising funds for the Child Advocacy Center of Clearfield County (CAC-CC).

Shaw reported that Claire wanted to help the surrounding area and discussed options with her mother. Clair decided she would paint a picture and auction the artwork on her mother’s Facebook page.

Brayden told his mother that he wanted to help kids too. Brayden emptied his piggy bank, counted his money, and had his mother make a bid of $80.00 for Claire’s artwork. After Brayden’s bid, everyone started adding to the donation and Brayden’s bid quickly grew to $600.00.

All monies raised from the auction were to be donated to the charity of Claire’s choice. Shaw stated that Claire raised over $2,000.00 from her auction and she has donated those funds to 15 different charities including the Child Advocacy Center of Clearfield County.

Claire stated, “I am very thankful that Brayden helped me raise all that money!” Brayden explained, “I wanted to give kids money, so I can help them be safe and healthy. I don’t want kids to ever be hurt.” Claire stated, “I think it was very nice of Mr. Shaw to work so hard to get the Children’s Advocacy Center open. They help children through bad things.”

Shaw thanked Clair and Brayden for their hard work and for choosing to help support the Child Advocacy Center.
