Clinton Middle School students exceeded their $16,500 goal, raising $17,250 to donate to the United Way of Clinton County, Iowa (UWCCI). Teacher Eric Slocum, a lead organizer behind the annual fundraisers, says, “I’m really proud of our amazing students and staff here at Clinton Middle School. We are all willing to do what it takes to support this great cause!”
Clinton Middle School has held a fundraiser for charity each of the last few years, with their goal increased and exceeded each year. This year, the students recognized the need here in their local community and decided to increase their goal and keep the funds local to benefit the UWCCI and the many local programs that it supports, such as housing assistance, food pantries, and other crisis assistance through numerous local non-profits like YWCA, Associate Benevolent Society, Information Referral & Assistance Services.
