The Clinton Am-Vets are looking at tough times ahead after losing their two biggest fundraisers of the year due to COVID.
Marc Rogers with the Am-Vets indicates the losses of the annual May Days Festival and the annual Apple n' Pork Festival means they will be without their two biggest fundraisers. In a good year, the Am-Vets could pull in roughly $3,000 from the Apple n' Pork Festival alone and contribute those funds to groups like the Boys Scouts and the Danville Veterans Hospital.
With those losses, Rogers says they will likely be turning to the community to allow them to continue to help other veterans and engage with the local Boy Scouts.
Any donations for the Am-Vets can be dropped by their office at 302 North Monroe Street in Clinton.
