The Clarksburg League for Service was formed to operate and maintain charitable projects for the underprivileged of Harrison County. For the past 82 years, our volunteers have been making a difference for the youth of Harrison County. Some of the ways we’ve helped is by providing:
- Over 4,000 backpacks and warm winter coats to Harrison County elementary, middle, and high school students;
- Free Homecoming and Prom apparel for young men and women so they may attend their high school functions with pride and dignity;
- Yearly opportunities for three young women to attend Rhododendron Girls State and three young men to attend Mountaineer Boys State;
- Provide $10,000 annually in scholarships to Harrison County High School seniors, nursing students, and medical students.
Without these interventions, many children in our community would not know the benefits of a warm coat, a backpack for school, or the experience of a school social event.
In addition to the wonderful work described above, in 2005 the Clarksburg League for Service established Amy’s Attic to provide a helping hand for Harrison County families in need. Last year alone, Amy’s Attic providfed 1,184 clients with over $41,000 worth of items like
- Baby items
- Career clothing
- School clothing
- Household items
This work could only be accomplished with the help of the community and the support of many partners including the Harrison County Board of Education, the Salvation Army, and other referral agencies working along side of us to ease the plight of the underprivileged in our community.
Some other projects of the Clarksburg League for Service include helping H.I.S Bridge Builders with $1,568.00 of personal care items for their clients, providing 23 start-up bundles for the homeless clients of the 100,000 Homes Campaign as well as providing 2,000 Centra Bus Tickets for the residents of the Clarksburg Mission.
