SeaComm Supports The Christmas Bureau
SeaComm recently donated a large supply of premium headsets and earbuds to The Christmas Bureau of Clinton County. The gifts will be given to teens and older children in-need, who are not often the focus of the holiday season. The Christmas Bureau is a local volunteer organization with a sole mission to provide “Christmas” for low-income families throughout all of Clinton County.
