Four members of the Clinton County Community Foundation Advisory Board were on hand last week to meet with Kentucky State Senator Max Wise and AT&T Regional Director of External and Legislative Affairs Nancy Jarett, who presented the local foundation with a donation in the amount of $2,000.  The Clinton County Community Foundation was formed last year as an effort to establish a means for Clinton County to have in place a way for people to “give back” to the community they call “home”, whether that be a past or present situation.  Funds that are being raised by the local Foundation are channeled into an endowment type program in conjunction with the Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky.

In making the recent donation to the Clinton County Community Foundation, Jarett noted that “AT&T believes in supporting the communities we serve,”  and made the donation through it’s Local Community Charity Program.  Senator Wise became aware recently of this available fund from AT&T, and was successful in channeling the donation toward the Clinton County program.

Clinton County Community Foundation Advisory Board members on hand for the presentation included, left to right, Arica Collins, David Cross, Larry Conner and Steven Tallent.

For information on contributing to the local Foundation, contact any member of the Advisory Board or write to the CCCF at P.O. Box 635, Albany, KY  42602.

Clinton County Community Foundation funds

donated to Healthy Hometown playground project

Steve Morgan, chairman of the Clinton County Community Foundation, was on hand Monday afternoon to present Clinton County Healthy Hometown Coalition Chairman Paula Little, left, and Coalition Director April Speck, with a donation in the amount of $2,500.

The donation will go toward the Coalition’s playground area renovation project that is planned for the Mountain View Recreation Park. In addition to this donation, the Foundation was also responsible for causing an additional $5,000 grant to be directed to the same project earlier last year.

Several fundraising efforts, along with a host of donations from local and area agencies, have been made toward the playground renovation project, and work on that project is expected to be visible later this spring.

The Healthy Hometown Coalition, whose goal is to focus on improving the health opportunities of local residents and especially that of our school-aged population, was recently approved for it’s Phase II funding from the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky resulting in a grant of over $400,000 over a three year program.

Morgan made the donation Monday during a meeting of the Clinton County Healthy Hometown Coalition, which is made up of several Clinton County community members from the school, health and business sectors.
