11th Annual Joseph C. Cirelli Community Service Award Recipient
The winner is Bonnie Nichols, who was nominated for the award by her daughter-in-law Rachael Nichols. Bonnie has volunteered with Living in Liberty in Gibsonia, Pennsylvania, since 2013. She leads the street outreach of the organization, where she walks the streets to find and make contact with prostitutes in order to help meet their immediate need of food and clothing. She then teaches them about what Living in Liberty can offer them. Bonnie also works at the care center, where she helps build relationships with these women while providing them with hot meals, a clean, safe place to rest, and giving them love and support in order to help them navigate their way out of the bondage of prostitution.
Living in Liberty’s goal is to restore dignity and freedom to victims of human trafficking. They do so by providing a loving and nurturing community which offers a secure and loving home environment where victims receive the care, treatment, and education necessary to move beyond their painful pasts and into a bright future. They also educate the community at large about sex trafficking, its prevalence worldwide, and right here in our own communities. These victims receive emotional and spiritual support, healthcare, education and skills training, food, clothing, legal counseling, and more.
In honor of Bonnie’s dedication and service, Clearview is making a $2,500 donation to Living in Liberty. The organization will use the donation to expand their sphere of influence from 5 communities within Southwestern PA to 7 locations, including Butler. They hope to also expand vertically to work upstream at the source of this complex issue, by increasing their community outreach and education to help prevent young girls from falling prey to trafficking in the first place.
The Joseph C. Cirelli Community Service Award was created to recognize a person who provides outstanding volunteer service to his/her community. The award is named in honor of former Clearview President/CEO Joseph Cirelli who served the Credit Union for 35 years.
Clearview donated $10,000 to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh
In light of the recent devastating attack against the members of the Tree of Life synagogue in Squirrel Hill, we have donated $10,000 to the Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh’s Our Victims of Terror fund. Our donation, which was given through the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania, is part of their contribution match of up to $100,000.
Those funds will be entirely dedicated to support psychological services, support for families, general services, reconstruction, additional security throughout the community, medical bills for all those involved, as well as counseling and other services that may prove necessary in the future.
“Our condolences go out to the victims, families and friends of those affected by the tragedy that occurred this past weekend. Pittsburgh is a close-knit community and seeing how the community has been able to come together during this time of grief shows how strong this city is. I am proud to present the gift of $10,000 from the board of directors and employees of Clearview,” said Ron Celaschi, Clearview CEO.
In an effort to continue raising funds in support of the victims’ families, Clearview employees will have the option to wear their favorite Pittsburgh team jersey to work for a donation of $11 in honor of the 11 lives that were lost. All money raised from the employees will also go to the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania’s collection for the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s Our Victims of Terror fund.
While it is still unthinkable to begin to accept such devastation happening so close to home, we must remember that we are all stronger than hate.
Clearview donates to local flood victims
Clearview Federal Credit Union contributed $10,000 to the Southwestern PA Chapter of the American Red Cross for relief to local families experiencing loss due to the recent flooding. The donation is part of CFCU’s ongoing commitment to the communities served and is earmarked for the Disaster Relief Program of the Red Cross.
The Pittsburgh region suffered from severe flooding over the past few weeks. In the South Hills, flooding impacted a total of 150 homes, with 50 experiencing major damage, 10 homes were destroyed and 5 were inaccessible. Damage in the North Hills is still presently being assessed.
The CFCU Board of Directors approved the gift, which represents nearly 25 percent of funds spent on providing relief to the flood victims. This includes community centers to temporarily house families, supplemental assistance to those hardest hit, food, clothing and cleanup, along with referrals for additional support.
Board Chair Doug Montanari, Board member Robert Farrell, and CEO Ronald Celaschi, along with senior management were on hand to present the check to Terry Koontz, Chief Development Officer and Connie Cavrich, Regional Philanthropy Officer, of the Southwestern PA Chapter of the Red Cross, at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 11th at the Southwestern Chapter of the Red Cross, 2801 Liberty Ave, Pittsburgh, PA, 15222.
