Recent Events – Latrobe & Pitt

At Clearview, we love participating in events and programs benefiting the Southwestern Pennsylvania community. Last week, we were happy to be a part of two exciting events going on in the area — a ribbon cutting ceremony for our newly upgraded Latrobe Branch and a donation presentation to JDRF of Western Pennsylvania in partnership with the Pitt Men’s Basketball team.

Latrobe Revitalization & Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

In Latrobe, we recently upgraded our branch on Lloyd Avenue to feature digital displays, a touchscreen kiosk and free wi-fi, as well as an outdoor parklet and green space with walk-up ATM. In addition, the 3,386 square-foot indoor space underwent cosmetic upgrades, including a modernized layout and décor.

We were so grateful to have some leaders from the community in attendance, including Jarod Trunzo, Executive Director of the Latrobe Community Revitalization Program, Rep. Joseph Petrarca of the 55th Legislative District, and Dorothy Staffen, District Administrator for State Senator Kim Ward of Pennsylvania’s 39th Senatorial District.

Our President & CEO Mark Brennan also presented a $500 donation to our neighbors at Adams Memorial Library for their summer reading program and other community programs.

It was a great way for us to celebrate our growth in the area as part of the community’s revitalization efforts.

Pitt Athletics and JDRF of Western Pennsylvania

If that wasn’t enough, we also celebrated the results of this year’s Points for Pediatrics program, which we sponsored for the eighth year in a row in partnership with the University of Pittsburgh.

Through this program, Clearview pledged to donate $40 for each 3-point basket made by the Pitt men’s basketball team during the 2016-2017 regular season games. Throughout the season, Pitt players made a total of 247 three-point baskets, earning a $9,880 donation from Clearview to this year’s charity, JDRF.

On Friday, we presented our donation to Carol M. Yannuzzi, Executive Director for JDRF of Western Pennsylvania. To cheer on the cause, Pitt cheerleaders and Panther mascot Roc also attended the presentation, along with some JDRF families whose lives are impacted daily by Type 1 Diabetes.

It was such a fun celebration, and the kids seemed to really enjoy the behind-the-scenes access to Pitt’s athletic facilities. One little girl, Finley from Greensburg, even presented our President & CEO with a handmade drawing to show her appreciation!
