LOCK HAVEN — The Clinton County United Way is partnering with members of Downtown Lock Haven, Inc.’s Merchant’s Group to promote their shared missions of improving the community.

The Clinton County United Way’s large sign will be displayed in multiple downtown merchant locations throughout this summer to coincide with the ongoing revitalization of downtown Lock Haven.

The sign shows the positive and direct impacts that supporting the Clinton County United Way has on the residents of the county. Look for the sign to move every few weeks to a different merchant location encouraging everyone during these trying times to frequent local businesses and to “shop small.”

Clinton County Executive Director Ben Green exclaimed, “Partnering with the merchant’s group of Downtown Lock Haven, Inc. is a wonderful opportunity this summer. With our town revitalizing thanks to new businesses, new investment, and new ideas, it is the perfect moment to raise awareness of our mission and that of Downtown Lock Haven, Inc.’s. Both our organizations ultimate goals are to improve the lives of the residents of Clinton County.”

The Clinton County United Way achieves its mission through advocacy at the state and national level and by funding programs, services, and agencies that strive to improve the health, education, and financial stability of the residents who call Clinton County their home. The Clinton County United Way currently has 13 non-profit partner agencies directly serving the diverse needs of Clinton County.

Downtown Lock Haven Inc.’s mission is to promote the promise of Lock Haven through revitalizing the downtown through community and economic development programs.

Downtown Lock Haven Inc.’s manager Marie Vilello had this to say, “Downtown Lock Haven, Inc. is excited and proud to have our Merchants Committee partner with the Clinton County United Way. I can’t think of a better way to give back to our community by continuing to “shop small; shop local” and by supporting the United Way so that they can continue their mission of helping those in need right here in Clinton County.”
