Career Center students donate to Cancer Center

From staff reports

Clarion County Career Center students donated $7,081.14 to the Clarion Cancer Center’s Sunshine Fund.

Tracy Myers from the Cancer Center said the money is used to help Clarion County residents who have cancer.

“We pay bills for them that their insurance doesn’t cover,” said Myers. “We didn’t want patients who have cancer to stress out about money.

“In just over three years we have paid over $160,000 in patient bills,” Myers added. “We could not do that without the people in this community. Your group has probably had the biggest impact,” she told the students.

Linda Skelly from the Career Center said this was the eighth year the school has made a donation to the Cancer Center. Skelly said the money came from candy sales and money the students donated into coin containers.

In eight years the Career Center students have donated $31,762,43 to the Cancer Center.
