PIP in the parade
Last Saturday several PIP’ers walked or rode on the float during Mansfield’s annual 4th of July parade! The Hawaiian-themed float and outfits were a big hit with the crowd!
Partners In Progress employees took part in the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce Annual Golf Tournament on Friday, June 15th. Our stylish golfers included Shane Milheim, Corey Johnson, Sarah Weiskopf, and Joseph Rogers. Nice job!
Thank you Northwest!
Mansfield’s Northwest Bank just received a beautiful new makeover inside. As part of their celebration, they have donated $1000 to Partners In Progress!
PIP Executive Director K. Irene Morgan accepted the check on behalf of Partners In Progress. “Partners In Progress’ vision is to help create a community that is inclusive and progress,” said Morgan. “This acknowledgment from Northwest Bank demonstrates that our communities are on the right track and we look forward to future partnerships.”
Morgan added, “These monies are targeted toward the purchase of equipment to be used for sensory integration. This fascinating process takes information through ones’ physical senses and put it together with stores information to create a meaningful response. Positive results have occurred in persons with autism, ADD and ADHD. Some of these dollars will also go toward Highland Chocolates where our plan is to modernize the chocolate factory while still producing high-quality handmade chocolates.”
Northwest Bank donated all of their old office furniture to My Neighbors’ Closet and purchased chocolates from Highland Chocolates to give to their customers during their open house!
Thank you SO MUCH Valerie Stickler and Northwest Bank!!!

Learning proper dental care
Since 2013, Partners In Progress has hosted Penn College Dental Hygiene students. The students teach dental care to our Individuals and always have a gift bag of dental goodies to share with all. Part of their curriculum requires community outreach and we are happy to help.
Shown here are students Mary and Lindsey giving the lesson. They also presented a session at our Transition house to students from the Wellsboro Area School District.
Wednesday, February 7th, all programming and transportation are cancelled due to the snow storm.
