The idea of having a "United Fund" to support local needs spread to Logan County in 1954 when area business leaders joined together to offer a giving opportunity for their employees. The tradition of giving via payroll deduction at work continues to this day and the annual United Way campaign is still the largest communitywide fundraiser in Logan County. The workplace campaign is at the heart of that effort. Conducting a workplace campaign will bring many benefits to your workplace.
