The trickle down effect of the Clinton Power Station closure seems almost endless in DeWitt County.
Between government entities and non-profits locally, it is hard to find a faction of the community that would not be impacted by the loss of Exelon.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of DeWitt County would stand lose volunteers, events and funding if Exelon were to leave the community. Brie Weaver with BBBS says Exelon has become a big supporter of their organization in recent years.
According to Weaver, the interactions with Exelon employees with the kids in their organization has been one of the areas they have contributed as well. She says it would be sad to see that partnership disappear.
Weaver says having Exelon has allowed to them to serve as many kids that have come into their group. She says if Exelon leaves the community and they cannot supplement the funds they lose from their absence, it is possible they would have to cap their program.
