JOIN OUR FIGHT FOR THE HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND FINANCIAL STABILITY OF EVERY PERSON IN OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES!
 
Since 1955, United Way has been THE way we come together to give back in Logan County.  YOU are a part of long giving tradition that WORKS!  
 
We hope you view us as a community partner in your work to educate our next generation.  While you are working with students in the classroom during the school day, our programs are taking care of kids' needs so they can come to school ready to learn.  For example, because of United Way funding:
  • More than 1,800 preschoolers are enrolled in the DOLLY PARTON IMAGINATION LIBRARY, receiving a free book every month to increase vocabulary, build kindergarten readiness, and have quality reading time with family members.  We are #2 in Ohio with 60 percent of our preschoolers enrolled!
  • WARM CLOTHES FOR KIDS works with teachers and administrators each fall to identify over 400 children in Grades K-8 who need new winter coats and gear and outfits them before the snow flies.
  • Our STUFF THE BUS school supply drive collects and distributes thousands of materials directly to all county schools so teachers and students have a stash of items from which they can pick out exactly what they need.
  • TCN BEHAVIORIAL HEALTH screens every 6th and 9th grade student for mental health, substance abuse, and suicide risk so that those who score high can get help and counseling.
  • Afterschool and summer activities occur everyday at the LOGAN COUNTY NEIGHBORHOOD OUTREACH CENTERS in Bellefontaine, Russells Point, and Chippewa.
  • Spaces in summer camps and activities are provided at the HILLIKER YMCA, SUMMER AUTISM ACADEMY, UNION STATION, and the Camp Braveheart Bereavement Camp through GREEN HILLS / UNIVERSAL HOSPICE.
  • Our STUDENT UNITED WAY leadership development program brings together two dozen students from seven high schools to learn about community needs and address them by having the students themselves award $20,000 in grants to organizations of THEIR choosing.  See their allocations below.
  • Our COMMUNITY IMPACT FUND one-time grants have also had a major emphasis toward youth this year.  Just last month, a $30,000 grant was awarded to the YMCA OF CENTRAL OHIO to start-up a new child care center in Bellefontaine this fall.  Addtional award winners are listed below.
  • So many children are supported through rent and food assistance programs that are helping their entire families.
