To Liz, Clinton Human Services, “the beating heart of our community,” epitomizes that generosity year-round. Liz has served as a member of the Human Services Advisory Board, and on keeping the local food pantry stocked. She admires the “fabulous job” the staff does connecting families with food, housing, counseling, and more. “If you live here and have a need, the town can satisfy it,” she says.
The Christmas tradition continues to be close to Liz’s heart, and she recalls some memorable gifts.
“We gave a banjo one year!” she says. “There was a 7 or 8 year old boy who wanted to study music and take banjo lessons. I can think of a lot of ways you can spend $200, but when you can make someone feel really good, there’s nothing better.”
