CCCTC Skills USA students host volleyball fundraising event for REST Inc. – GantNews.com
CLEARFIELD – The Skills USA student leadership group at the Clearfield County Career and Technology Center continues to support local charity, REST Inc., with an upcoming fundraiser for the “United For families” at the Curwensville area high school.
Each year, this youth leadership group hires a local charity to support their cause and raise money for charity work.
The Skills USA group initially decided to support REST Inc. in 2021 by raising awareness in the community about the needs of related families and helping to organize the first annual Kinship Family Christmas Party.
REST Inc., a local nonprofit charity, is dedicated to supporting informal kin families in the area.
The United for Families Volleyball Tournament begins with team registration at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 26, 2022 and entry is free.
This is a double elimination tournament for players 14 and older and teams of six to eight members. The registration cost is $10 per player, and teams can pre-register by emailing team information to email@example.com and paying the team fee when of the tournament.
Sixteen team spots are available but are filling up quickly, so interested participants are encouraged to register as soon as possible. The top five teams will win plaques and the medals will go to the top 3 teams.
A 50/50 raffle, Chinese auction and concession stand will also be available to raise charity funds.
The Skills USA team responsible for making such a positive impact on the local community consists of Raven Myers, Karley Framer, Chloe Rowles, Will Rainey, Lydia Swatsworth, Makenzie Hullihen and Tessa Reams. This incredible group of young leaders operates under the guidance of Advisors Jerome Mick, Jennifer Kerr, Dan Kerlin and Susan Barger.
Anyone interested in learning more about REST and kinship families is encouraged to visit www.restfamilies.org online and follow REST on Facebook.
