We are grateful for the many fundraisers held by area schools to help family, friends and neighbors through the 1889 Foundation. What a meaningful way to show you care! Two fundraisers were held recently to benefit area cancer patients, helping us provide assistance with meals or supplements, transportation to treatment, or help with special circumstances that may arise. Hats off to these wonderful students, and everyone who supported their efforts!

The Northern Cambria Football Boosters held Colts Against Cancer fundraisers to benefit the 1889 Foundation as well, including their first Colts Against Cancer Game, held on Senior Night (Oct. 7).  We thank all who supported this effort, including  John Thomas Heating & Plumbing and Graphic Connections.
