United Way approaching annual campaign goal

With the recent announcements from AcuSport and AGC the United Way of Logan County is approaching 95% of its 2012 campaign goal. AcuSport provided $75,387, an increase of 26% over last year. The AGC combined company and associate campaign contributed $32,292, an increase of 26%.

Campaigns were recently completed at the Bellefontaine City Schools $17,142, Logan County Employees $13,325, NetGain  $9,385, Logan County Attorneys $6,780, Benjamin Logan Schools $4,334, Citizens Federal Savings and Loan $3,000, HBD Industries $3,878, Green Hills $3,739, Consolidated Care $3,720, Logan County Physicians and Dentists $2,750, Thomas and Marker $2,020, Humble Construction $1,220, Michael Eller Diamonds $1,000, Zimmerman Reality $1,000, Logan County Education Services $918, WPKO/WBLL $813, Union Banking $800, Choice Properties $645, Money Concepts $500, Axis $500, the Bellefontaine Examiner $500, and Century 21 RHA $200.

To date the 2012 campaign has generated $616,163 in donations surpassing the $611,422 number that was reached in 2011. With a few weeks remaining before this year’s event comes to a close, campaign leaders anticipate meeting the goal of $655,000. This will allow the organization to reverse the negative trends of recent years.

“We are blessed to live in a community that recognizes the needs of its residents and supports the United Way and the 22 supported agencies through personal volunteering and by providing the type of funding required for the programs that they provide," said Jim Donnelly, Executive Director. “It’s through the continued strength of our community’s support and charitable giving that enables the United Way of Logan County and these agencies the ability to support the needs of our families, friends and neighbors."

Several local businesses along with the City of Bellefontaine and its employees are in the final process of managing their internal campaigns.

“The annual campaign is a call to action that helps to build excitement within the community,” said Donnelly. “Through the generosity of our many donors and the support of our volunteers, “Together” we are able to improve the lives of many."

The United Way of Logan County’s annual campaign supports 22 non-profit agencies in Logan County whose programs touch one out of three residents.
