Thank you, Logan County! Record-giving achieved!

The 2016 United Way campaign was one for the record books in Logan County.  Local residents and businesses combined to pledge $830,199, making it the most prolific our 62-year history.  That represents a 14% increase over last year, and 111% of the $750,000 goal.

"We are overjoyed at the outpouring of support and generosity from the community," said Chad & Jamie Ross, United Way Campaign Co-Chairs.  "Furthermore, we are extremely grateful for the hard work and leadership of the Logan County United Way organization and the enthusiastic leaders who organize the local employer campaigns.  we have enjoyed using our individual strengths to find ways to foster the campaign.  It has been so exciting to help promote new programs that the United Way is helping bring to our area and to sing the praises of programs that are already making an impact.   We are delighted to have played a role in this record-breaking campaign, and hope the United Way is able to continue exceeding its fundraising goals every year."

We recognized our top supporters at the LIVE UNITED Awards Luncheon on Wednesday January 25.
