Fairview/Fairmont Outreach


What’s happening at the Fairview / Fairmont Outreach?

by Director, Diane Craven

This past February the children enjoyed making valentines for the residents of Juniper Village. Sadly because of all the flu & colds this season, we weren’t able to give them out personally, but dropped off the treats. We heard they were well received! We also made heart ornaments for our neighbors in the apartment complex and delivered valentine cookies to most!

This month we will join children across the nation for “Read Across America”, visiting Seussville , making up our own tongue twisters like Dr. Seuss’s “Fox in Socks”, and reading “Horton Hears a Who” and discussing what’s a bully and what’s a friend.

We also have eleven “Bigs” from Big Brother / Big Sisters meeting with the “Littles” each week for an hour after school during the week. Thank you to this wonderful organization and their tremendous mentoring program sponsored by Family Services of Northwestern PA! They have their big fundraiser, Bowl for Kid’s Sake coming up April 14th. We will be raising funds to sponsor our littles during this event!

Our adults and families continue to use the Center’s computer lab, office machines, The Lord’s Locker (2nd hand clothing store) and join for social gatherings, fellowship and support. Three of our residents just complete a 6 session workshop offered by Penn State Extension, “Nutrition Link”, healthy eating, and meal planning, purchasing & budgeting. We hope to offer it later for more of our residents can take advantage of this great workshop.

Staff is starting to gear up for the summer and planning programs! We have signed a contract with the IU for the summer lunch program that will be offered at the center. We are looking for summer help also! Someone who loves children and the outdoors, must be 19 or older, and have clearances! Please call the Outreach if you know of someone who would be interested! The position is for 30 hours a week, mid- June thru mid- August.

Again, thank you Stone UMC and First Presbyterian Church for your support and your continued prayers for the residents and for the Fairview/Fairmont Outreach Center!
