EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Community members in Clint are hoping to raise $3,000 by Oct. 28 to make improvements to Clint’s Veterans Park.

Melanie Martinez, an advocate for the Veterans of Clint has created a GoFundMe to help the Veterans raise the money needed for improvements. The local Veterans usually hold fundraisers, but it takes a long time for them to get this kind of money.

“These 3,000 dollars would actually be the amount of a fundraiser for a three-year period for them.”

The money would go to a new lighting system, sprinkler system, and landscaping.
