CLEARFIELD- Clearfield County District Attorney, William A. Shaw, Jr., thanked the organizations and individuals throughout Clearfield County for their participation in Child Abuse Prevention Month during the month of April.

Shaw reported that the Girl Scout Troop #41997 donated 38 boxes of girl scout cookies to provide to children that visit the Child Advocacy Center. This is the third year in a row for these young ladies to support their community in honor of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Shaw thanked the Girl Scouts for their hard work to spread awareness about child abuse and for their continued support of the Child Advocacy Center of Clearfield County.

Shaw thanked CBT Bank, Beccaria Township, SCI Houtzdale Journey for Change Organization, Glendale Industrial Development Association, Stoltz Family Dealerships, CNB Bank, Kurt Johnson Auto Sale, Hrenko Insurance Agency, INC, and Richard Snyder for their generous support of the CAC-CC.

Shaw also thanked the children throughout the county that donated their time in making artwork for the 2019 CAC-CC coloring contest. Shaw expressed that the 12 artwork winners will be published in the CAC-CC’s 2020 calendar.

Shaw thanked the individuals of Clearfield County that received the Darkness to Light Stewards Plus training. The CAC-CC has provided 85 people this vital training throughout Clearfield County. Shaw explained that interested persons might email cac@cenclear.org to enroll in the online training. Shaw noted that openings are limited and encouraged interested persons to apply quickly. Shaw said this online training provides the public with an opportunity to be trained in identifying and reporting child abuse.
