Fayette County Children And Youth Services Host Clothing Giveaway For Families In Need

By: KDKA-TV News Staff UNIONTOWN (KDKA) – Fayette County Children and Youth Services helped families and children preparing to head back to school upgrade their wardrobes for free last weekend. The event provided children and adults alike with clothing old and new, with the agency noting they have received plenty of donations over time. “We had a lot of overstock,” Caseworker Reba Stramat said. “We thought originally, [we would have a] yard sale, but then, we thought, ‘No, let’s give it away to people who need it.’” All manner of clothing was available, including shirts, pants, socks, and outerwear. Any clothing that was not claimed was donated to “Honey’s Helping Hand” a local nonprofit.

Ohiopyle Offers Many Natural Adventures and Fun Activities (Tues., 7/27/21)

Ohiopyle State Park (green nature, white water, more)—ongoing, Ohiopyle. Ohiopyle State Park, southeast of Pittsburgh, is wild and scenic. In the 1800s the area drew city dwellers who’d come just to stroll and enjoy the beauties of nature. That pastime is still popular, along with more activities today—notably, white water boating on the Youghiogheny River, which snakes through valleys and gorges here. Within the parkland, two stretches of river offer different experiences. The so-called Middle Yough, which runs from upstream into the town of Ohiopyle, is the gentler ride: a mix of fast-moving flat water and moderate (“Class I and II”) rapids. Kayakers and standup paddleboarders who first have mastered steering on calm water often use this stretch to learn the game of zipping through chutes and dips without mucho upsets. The Lower Yough, from Ohiopyle down, has the bigger, bouncier rapids. Expert kayakers love it, as do visitors who take the guided raft trips, paddling in (relatively) stable soft rafts with guides who know the way. Major outfitters, alphabetically, are: Laurel Highlands River Tours, Ohiopyle Trading Post, White Water Adventurers, and Wilderness Voyageurs.
