[April 22, 2016]   LINCOLN - United Way of Logan County will host a Spring Scramble Golf Outing at North Greens Golf Course, Atlanta, on Saturday, April 30. Registration opens at 8 a.m., play starts at 9 a.m. This activity was once an annual fundraising event for the organization, and has been revamped for the 2016 golf season.

The purpose of any event hosted by United Way of Logan County is to raise funds in support of programs that provide services and programs for Logan County residents. Almost one-third of Logan County residents obtain services from, or participate in programs offered by: American Red Cross; W.D. Boyce Council, Boy Scouts of America; Center for Youth and Family Solutions; Christian Child Care; CAPCIL’s Senior Nutrition and Logan-Mason Public Transportation; Girls On The Run; Girl Scouts of Central Illinois; Lincoln Area YMCA; Lincoln Pastoral Counseling Services; Little Lambs Learning Center; Pregnancy Resource Center; Logan-Mason Rehabilitation Center; Oasis/Senior Citizens of Logan County; Salvation Army/Keest Center; United Cerebral Palsy.

In order to provide local partnering agencies with ongoing financial assistance, the United Way depends on community support in the form of payroll deductions, private donations and corporate match. As state funding is reduced for lack of a budget, and outside funding sources are forced to pick and choose recipients of their limited resources, it is more important that communities come together to assist local agencies. Neighbors helping neighbors, businesses helping not-for-profits, group efforts adding up to significant contributions.
