NCB recently donated $1,500 to the Clinton County Foster Children’s Trust Fund. It was established to support the foster children of Clinton County who are in the custody of Clinton County’s Child Protection Unit or a family member, and currently working with the agency because of the abuse or neglect the child has suffered.

The agency has hit an all-time record high with 77 children in care and another 100 living with relatives.

The money will be used to support foster and kinship children with items such as sports fees, camps, extra school fees for activities and trips, coping skills tools, Christmas gifts, birthdays, recruitment of foster parents, baby items, and any number of items that aren’t available with government funding.

These extras help the children gain a sense of normalcy and to reduce any barriers there are to help them with their adjustment during this difficult time.
