[November 02, 2019]  Its time for the annual United Way Campaign in Logan County a time when Logan County comes together to LIVE UNITED. 

Funding provided by generous employers, employees, organizations and individuals during this time will be distributed in 2020 to partner agencies that provide services right here in Logan County.  The money raised in Logan County STAYS in Logan County.  Money also comes into Logan County from other United Way Campaigns thanks to affiliation with the national organization.   

As a result of last years campaign, $87,000 will have been distributed by the end of the year to 14 different non-profit agencies allowing Logan County residents access to their services. For 2020, the United Way has partnered with 15 non-profit agencies to provide a portion of the funding needed to continue to provide services in our community. Those agencies and programs are: The American Red Cross, Boy Scouts, Center for Youth and Family Services, Christian Child Care, Community Action of Central Illinois Meals on Wheels and CAPCIL Transit Program, Girls On The Run, Girl Scouts, Junior Achievement of Central Illinois, Lincoln Area YMCA, Lincoln Pastoral Counseling Services, Living Alternatives Pregnancy Resource Center, Lincoln Center for Developmental Rehabilitation, The Oasis/Senior Citizens of Logan County and The Salvation Army.   

The United Way of Logan County has been working for 58 years in our community.  The mission of the United Way is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world.  The United Way envisions a world where all individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, income stability and healthy lives.

Why should community members get involved?   When asked why she has gotten involved in the leadership of the United Way of Logan County, board member Erin Burns explains, I think its so important to support organizations that in turn support OUR local community.  Especially in smaller towns and counties, we really need to look out for one another.  The United Way of Logan County is a great organization to invest in to ensure that your gifts are going to help those in need in our very own community. 

The campaign to raise money for next year is happening now and is ongoing.   How can Logan County residents help our community LIVE UNITED?
