Jeffrey Schwarz spent part of the holiday in the basement ceramic studio at Braddock's Carnegie Library, creating up to
80 clay water filters to be shipped to South Africa. "Clean ... drinking water is the right of all people," said Schwarz, 33, of
Portersville in Butler County, a KEYS Service Corps member and studio coordinator of Braddock Carnegie Arts Program.

look for an opportunity to serve."
