Community Action team effort for all


May is Community Action Month, and as part of the celebration of I would like to say a public thank you to the staff and board of Clinton County Community Action.

The staff at the agency has worked during the COVID-19 pandemic remaining open to provide continuous services to Clinton County residents in need of assistance covering ages 3 and up. They taught students, provided meals for seniors, cleaned for seniors, provided transportation for seniors as well as housing for both families and seniors.

In addition, during this difficult period they were there as a support to each other as well as to me.
