Community Guidance Center to participate in Day of Giving
The Community Guidance Center is participating in the third annual Armstrong Day of Giving on May 8.
Any donations made to the Armstrong County Community Foundation (ACCF) with Community Guidance Center designated will receive a portion of the match.
The center has been dedicated to providing high-quality, comprehensive mental health, drug and alcohol, and intellectual disabilities services since 1959.
The agency offers a wide array of services at its main office in White Township and provides many outreach services throughout Indiana and Armstrong counties.
All donations received through the Armstrong Day of Giving will be used to help fund the center’s Eugene Jones Scholarship Fund, established in memory of board member and past board president Eugene H. Jones.
The scholarship is awarded to Community Guidance Center consumers who are interested in furthering their education.
Applications are reviewed by a selection committee and chosen based on financial need and acceptance to an accredited technical school, vocational school, university or college.
There are three options for making donations on May 8:
1. Write a check to ACCF with the name of the organization in the memo line and deliver it to 220 S. Jefferson St., Kittanning.

The Armstrong Day of Giving takes place in May which is also Mental Health Month. During this time, the Community Guidance Center joins others in the community to increase efforts on raising awareness about mental health disorders. In addition to treating those in the community who are dealing with mental health issues, the Community Guidance Center is dedicated to helping overcome the stigma that accompanies mental health disorders and being the voice for people who feel that they cannot speak up for themselves. The Community Guidance Center is hopeful that the donations received through the Armstrong Day of Giving will help to continue this valuable work.
