Clearview In The Community
Since becoming a community-chartered credit union in 2004, Clearview employees have donated over 44,000 hours to volunteering! Clearview supports the communities of Southwestern Pennsylvania through a variety of programs each year, including the following:
Community Quarterly Giving Program
Clearview employees focus on a specific charity each quarter. Some of the charities we have recently supported with donations include:

Charitable Jean Days
Employees donate $5 for the opportunity to wear casual clothes to work. Recent charitable jean days have supported the following local charities/events:

- March for Babies for the March of Dimes
- Annual Walk/Run for Epilepsy at PNC Park
- Glock Foundation which targets breast cancer through clinical trials
Clearview employees and their families recently participated in the following walks/runs:
- Walk MS -- This walk raises funds for Multiple Sclerosis research and life-changing services for people affected by MS.
- March for Babies Walk – This walk raises funds for research to prevent premature births and give hope to families of more than 500,000 babies born too soon each year.
- Family Fun Walk/Run for Epilepsy – This walk raises funds for research through the Epilepsy Foundation and provides support and services for people affected by Epilepsy.
Many local food pantries provide canned food, dry goods and household paper products to the needy members of our communities. Clearview and its employees support these local food pantries in many ways:
- Distribution – Employees volunteer weekly to distribute food and other dry goods to the clients of the food pantries.
- Delivery – The West Hills Food Pantry receives their supplies monthly from the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Clearview employees help unload the truck and stock the shelves and freezers.
- Thanksgiving Baskets – Clearview employees donate food for Thanksgiving Day meals in beautiful holiday baskets. The baskets are then passed out to many needy families at the local food pantries.
- Canned Food Collections – Twice a year, the West Hills Food Pantry receives a huge delivery of canned food. One delivery comes from the Postal Carriers and the other from the Mile of Cans collection held by the West Hills Christian Church. Our employees join the other volunteers to unload trucks and stock the shelves.
- Backpacks For Kids – New backpacks are purchased and filled by Clearview employees each summer. The local food pantries then distribute them to needy children at the start of the new school year.
- Winter Coats Collection – Employees donate gently worn winter coats each year to be distributed to both children and adults.
- Other Donations – Clearview and its employees make monetary donations, as well as other food donations throughout the year.
Clearview employees, along with employees of other credit unions from the Beaver Valley Chapter of Credit Unions, meet each year to participate in a fundraising Bowl-A-Thon. Clearview’s team has been participating since 2007 to raise money for the Pennsylvania Credit Union Foundation. The Pennsylvania Credit Union Foundation was formed in 1996 and provides individuals, credit unions and their communities with resources to stimulate socio-economic growth.
Joseph C. Cirelli Community Service Award
Clearview’s Joseph C. Cirelli Community Service Award is named in honor of former Clearview President and CEO, Joseph C. Cirelli, who served the Credit Union for 35 years. Since 2007, this annual award has benefited various nonprofit organizations and also acknowledged outstanding volunteers dedicated to charitable causes.
Clearview holds four open employee blood drives each year at its Moon Township branch in support of the Central Blood Bank. The Central Blood Bank recruits donors and collects blood for patients, hospitals and healthcare customers.
Clearview maintains Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) at each of its branches. Having an AED device in each branch enhances Clearview's capabilities as an emergency responder in the event of a life-threatening medical emergency. Clearview is pleased to be able to provide AEDs for the safety and convenience of members and employees.
Toys for Tots – Stuff a Bus
Clearview employees have gathered and delivered toys in an effort to stuff as many buses as possible to benefit the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. The toys collected are distributed to local families right here in Western Pennsylvania who needs a little extra help to give their children a wonderful Christmas.
West Hills Health & Rehabilitation Center
Clearview employees have regularly donated Christmas presents to the residents of the West Hills Health & Rehabilitation Center. The West Hills Health & Rehabilitation Center is a skilled nursing facility that offers a variety of therapies and care services to help their residents regain their independence.
