United Way of Clinton County Iowa Reaches 7.3% of Goal

With help of local businesses and residents, United Way of Clinton County, Iowa’s (UWCCI) annual campaign has made a strong start toward the $650,000 goal by the end of October. Among those pledging support through Workplace Giving payroll deductions are our local school teachers and staff, with over $14,000 in pledges made by employees of Clinton and Camanche Community Schools.

One in three Clinton County households struggle to pay their monthly bills. Many of those work but just cannot make it stretch every month. United Way is there to help, thanks to those who contribute to the annual campaign. Over twenty local agencies receive funds that provide emergency needs and longer-term services to give a hand up, not a hand out to Clinton County residents that are struggling.

Any contribution, no matter the amount, makes a difference in people’s lives. Gifts stay local to help local families. It takes everyone working together to create a brighter future for all.
