We are not funded by any government agency. 100% of the funds for our mission come from neighbor helping neighbor.
We pay no salaries, no volunteer expenses, we have no office, only a seasonal phone and our operating costs are minimal.
All donations are spent right here in Clinton County and all 1,000 plus families served each year reside in Clinton County.
Our fund raising campaign is from September to December ONLY -- we do not ask for anything from the community at any other time of year (except for used bicycles).
All applying families must go through an income verification process and must meet our guidelines.
In an effort to avoid duplication of services, we are the clearinghouse for other charitable organizations to clear their applicants.
