In addition, 175 meals were delivered to Ronald McDonald House, Women’s Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh, and Family House.

"We will continue to offer high-quality programming that makes it possible to invite every child into the adventure of learning, and this is possible because of partners like Clearview."

" It's a wonderful opportunity to expand our growth to serve the financial needs of the Shadyside neighborhood's on-the-go lifestyle. Clearview values itself as a true community partner, and we are proud of the collaboration with the Boys and Girls Clubs for the beautification and mural project. We look forward to a continued relationship with this organization and the Shadyside community."
