If the shelter from home decree from Illinois Governor gets extended later next week, the leader of a Clinton non-profit is concerned it could continue to impact their ability to provide services to the community.


Clinton YMCA Executive Director Rennie Cluver told Regional Radio News on the WHOW Morning Show Monday the YMCA is estimating around $30,000 in lost revenue through the first month of the coronavirus shutdown.



According to Cluver, he has looked to the future of how that loss in revenue will impact the things they do, but its not all doom and gloom. He indicates the PPP program that is looking to be expanded at the federal level soon, is an option for the Y.



The future of the Clinton YMCA weighs heavily on Cluver as revenue becomes lean during this time. He explains the situation doesn't get easier as it appears they will be in the heart of their annual fundraising campaign comes the lifting of stay at home restrictions.



The news has not been all bad for the Y. Cluver indicates its remodel project is now complete and he looks forward to the day they can open up to the public for them to see it.
