Clinton Town Employees Step Up


AFSCME Local 1303-199, representing Town of Clinton employees, is a small union in membership (16) but big in heart, as evidenced by their $500 donation to Families Helping Families, Inc.

“Our members wanted to do something for the good of Clinton. Many of us live in town or are involved in supporting local organizations,” said union President Andrea Woliver, an assistant in the Assessor’s Office. “When we decided to make a donation to a local charity, everyone agreed on Families Helping Families. It was unanimous. We didn’t have to think twice.”

Local 1303-199 members presented their donation to Families Helping Families President Miner Vincent during the non-profit’s Sixth Annual Apple Pie Festival, held Oct. 6 at Morgan High School.

Proceeds from the Apple Pie Festival enable Families Helping Families to provide emergency energy assistance and restock the Clinton Food Pantry.

“This is an unbelievable donation from the town hall employees union. We’re deeply appreciative,” Miner said. “We depend on the generosity of local citizens and businesses. Every dollar we raise goes right back into the community.
