“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.
