CLEARFIELD – Clearfield County Career & Technology Center’s (CCCTC) Digital Media Arts (DMA) student, Dominic Kovach, recently designed a logo for the non-profit organization, Pouches of Positivity.
Pouches of Positivity is the brainchild of Stephanie Errigo and her fiancé, James Tarbay.
James has Cystic Fibrosis (CF), and Stephanie wanted to come up with an idea on how to give back to those who may be feeling down or need something to help them from being bored while in the hospital.
CF patients typically end up in the hospital for a “tune-up” of antibiotics when necessary. James knows what it is like to be hospitalized and have nothing to do with your time but watch television and play on your phone.
It seemed as if a lot of the care package ideas were geared to younger patients, and Stephanie felt the need to help those that are young at heart.
Right now, care packages are being sent to UPMC Presbyterian where local CF patients go for their hospitalizations. Pouches of Positivity has delivered over 100 pouches since the project started in June of 2018.
The pouches contain adult coloring books, crossword puzzle and other word game books, notepads, crayons, pencils, snacks, cards, gum, lip gloss, games, hand sanitizer, etc.
They accept donations whether monetary or items. Pouches of Positivity is in the process of filing for 501c3 status to become a tax-exempt non-profit organization.
