Owners Michael and Carol Adametz, GRC Board Member, (BOM Coordinator) Judi Robbins, and Becky Kemp, Staff Member

Caring Transitions of Westmoreland County, a local company owned by Carol and Michael Adametz is located in the small borough of Sutersville. Their offices are located in the Sutersville Antique Mall which is in the former St. Charles Borromeo RC Church, on 5th Avenue, Sutersville.  They have been in operation since June of 2013.

Caring Transitions of Westmoreland is a full-service liquidation company that serves individuals through out Westmoreland, Fayette and parts of Washington and Allegheny counties.  The goal is to help individuals and families ease the burden of liquidating their assets, that they may be forced to do as a result of life-changing events.  Many of the clients are out-of-state children of parents or relatives living in the area, who are often left with the task of having to settle an estate of a deceased family member.  This almost always involves having to cleanout the contents and sell the home.  They are in need of a trusted source and this is where Caring Transitions comes in. 

Caring Transitions of Westmoreland County is part of a national franchise, with over 175 offices in North America.  As a national franchise, they are held to a high standard and have a vast resource directory to help clients in need.  All staff are employees of the company and have gone through a background check and training before beginning their employment. They are insured, bonded and have workers compensation insurance carried on them.

Caring Transitions of Westmoreland County prides themselves on their professional approach, led by their Christian values as they serve as advocates for the families they serve.  Security and privacy are very important and are a consideration in all decisions. 

Services range from complete clean-outs of homes to just selling the contents, with needs determined by the clients.  Unlike other companies, they can not only conduct the sales at the client's home but also offer sales at the offsite location in the basement of the Sutersville Antique Mall. 

Caring Transitions of Westmoreland County offers free consultations and will provide an honest assessment of the situation.  They will recommend a solution that is in the best interest of the client, and will educate the clients on their items to help them make informed decisions.  These steps are important because most clients are emotionally attached to their items and place an emotional value on their items. This can be dangerous, especially if the family is counting on the proceeds of the liquidation of their assets for a specific purpose.  Part of the goal is to make the expectations of the clients realistic so they can plan accordingly for their future.

If you are in a situation where you need to liquidate the assets of a loved-one, and are overwhelmed by the process, call Michael and Carol of Caring Transitions of Westmoreland County.  There is never a bad time to start your liquidation project and winter is actually a great time to do an estate sale as there is little or no competition from flea markets, yard sales, etc.

Michael and Carol thank you for this honor and thank God for their opportunity to serve.  For more information about Caring Transitions of Westmoreland County, call

Monongahela Valley Hospital Kicks Off Local Toys for Tots Campaign

It all began in Los Angeles, Ca. in 1947 with a homemade Raggedy Ann doll; that’s when Major Bill Hendricks, USMCR, first coordinated an organized toy drive for needy children. The effort led to the collection of 5,000 toys for girls and boys. The next year a group of Marine reservists founded a national campaign called Toys for Tots. Today, the organization collects new, unwrapped toys from October through December to distribute as Christmas gifts to needy children in the communities in which the campaigns are conducted.


Each year, Monongahela Valley Hospital (MVH) kicks off the Toys for Tots Campaign in the Mon Valley. On Oct. 20, teams of MVH leaders created 13 baskets filled with dolls, games, puzzles and other toys, including four baskets for special needs children. They also assembled 13 riding toys for the local Toys for Tots. Wally Fronzaglio, a Donora resident who has served as the U.S. Marine Corps. Reserve Toys for Tots coordinator for the past 29 years, watched the toy assembly. He then accepted the donated gifts on behalf of the Mon Valley Leathernecks, a group of former Marines who do the legwork for the local Toys for Tots program.


For more nearly 20 years, MVH’s John Bogdan, Behavioral Health nurse manager, and Doug Prentice, storeroom manger, have championed the Hospital’s annual toy drive. In addition to assembling the toys, the staff of Monongahela Valley Hospital places Toys for Tots collection boxes throughout the hospital campus. Members of the community are also welcome to donate toys at the hospital. Anyone interested in contributing, may drop off a new, unwrapped toy to Monongahela Valley Hospital’s Gift Shop. Checks also are welcome. They should be made payable to “Toys for Tots” and mailed to Wally Fronzaglio, 204 Brokaw Ave., Donora, PA 15033.
