With a lot of Super Heroes, some in costume and some in plain clothes, United Way for Clinton County held its Celebration at Prairie Creek Park on Tuesday afternoon. The United Way CEO, Anita Stewart, staff and board members were celebrating the 2020 Campaign’s success in raising $453,000 which this year is supporting 19 agency/programs in Clinton County and three large impact areas.
Those impact areas include mental health, homelessness and early childhood education. The agencies include American Red Cross, Boys & Girls Club, Camp Collum, COACH Kids, Family Literacy at the Frankfort Library, Food Finders, Girl Scouts, Quinton’s House, Healthy Communities mental health and Youth Rise programming, Open Door Clinic, Paul Phillippe Resource Center, Project Life Saver, Salvation Army, The ARC, We Care and the YMCA Learning Ladder and After School Program.
Clinton County is truly the home of Super Heroes who care for each other and the community as a whole. There is much need but seems to be an equal amount of hearts willing to share and help.
