[November 19, 2020]   LINCOLN - Itís once again that time of year when communities across the world come together for United Way Campaigns, and Logan County, Illinois is no exception!

During our local annual campaign, donations provided by generous businesses, organizations and individuals are collected to be distributed in 2021 as funding for partner agencies that provide services in our community. The money raised in Logan County STAYS in Logan County.

As a result of last yearís campaign, $82,000 will have been distributed by the end of 2020 to 15 different non-profit agencies that benefit our community. For 2021, the United Way of Logan County has partnered with 13 non-profit agencies to help fund the cost of providing local services, with a focus on direct services for those in need. The 2021 partner agencies and programs are: The American Red Cross, Boy Scouts, Center for Youth and Family Services, Christian Child Care, Community Action of Central Illinois Meals on Wheels and CAPCIL Transit Program, Girls On The Run, Girl Scouts, Lincoln Area YMCA, Lincoln Pastoral Counseling Services, Living Alternatives Pregnancy Resource Center, The Oasis/Senior Citizens of Logan County and The Salvation Army.

Thanks to our affiliation with state and national United Way organizations, another $25,000 in grants was awarded this year in Logan County to assist local agencies with the specific challenges that presented themselves during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Why should community members get involved? NOW, MORE THAN EVER, we need to LIVE UNITED. In 2020, local non-profit organizations have had to cancel fundraising activities and income generating programs due to COVID-19 restrictions, all while experiencing increased demand for services to those in need.

Your help will allow the United Way of Logan County to provide funding to 13 programs that support our friends, neighbors and relatives during times of difficulty.

The campaign to raise money for 2021 is happening now and is ongoing.
