United Way Community Care Day & Campaign Kickoff


The 8th annual corporate work day begins at 8 AM Friday and doubles as the 2023 United Way Campaign Kickoff.

Community Care Day reminds us that we are all a part of something bigger.

Over 300 volunteers are coming together to do 50 pre-coordinated service projects in a single day.

Volunteers will share the excitement, camaraderie, team-building, and good feelings that come with working together.

United Way’s Executive Director, Dave Bezusko talks more about the day:

For five straight years, the United Way of Logan County has raised over one million dollars each year for the community, Bezusko explains more:

A blood drive for the Community Blood Center is also taking place as a part of Community Care Day.

Community Blood Center reports a shortage of Type 0 and B- blood right now.

The Bloodmobile will be stationed in the parking lot of Bellefontaine Grace Church at 2220 S. Main Street in Bellefontaine.

30 slots will be available between 8:00 a.m. and Noon.

Donors can make their appointment online at www.uwlogan.org or by calling (937) 592-2886.

All donors at the United Way Blood Drive will receive a free t-shirt, a voucher to pick up a free pizza from Six Hundred Downtown on Friday and be entered into a drawing to win Cincinnati Bengals season tickets.

Each day, Community Blood Services schedules up to seven mobile blood drives throughout their service area to collect at least 250 pints of whole blood to supply hospitals and sufficiently meet patient transfusion needs.

The annual need is projected at more than 70,000 units of blood products.

All donated blood becomes part of the general blood supply.

Each unit of blood is tested, typed, processed, and then distributed daily to the area hospitals, including Mary Rutan Hospital in Bellefontaine.
