Local United Way can use help

Send a link to a friend

[March 05, 2009]  The 2008-2009 campaign goal for the United Way of Logan County is $90,000. They are currently at 64 percent of the goal, with some divisions yet to report. Lois Leonard, United Way coordinator, says she expects the division leaders to submit a final report in the next week or two.

Hardware"Considering the present economy, we understand the low percentage of contributions thus far," Leonard said. "However, our agencies have the need for funding even more in a time of an economic crunch. If everyone in Logan County who has not yet contributed would send us $1, we could easily achieve our goal and more."

The theme that the United Way of America has suggested to the local chapter is "Live United."

"Residents of Logan County must realize that it is your family, friends and neighbors who are the ones who benefit from your contributions," Leonard said. "We must all unite in the effort to assist our family, friends and neighbors through the following funded agencies: American Red Cross, Boy Scouts of America, Catholic Charities, Community Action Nutrition and Transportation, Epilepsy Resource Center, Girl Scouts of Central Illinois, Lincoln Pastoral Counseling Services, Logan Mason Rehabilitation Center, Pregnancy Resource Center, The Oasis senior center, T.O.U.C.H., United Cerebral Palsy and the Lincoln YMCA."

Your inquiries and contributions may be directed to the United Way of Logan County at P.O. Box 684, Lincoln, IL 62656; or you may call 217-735-4499 for more information.
