Sheldon, Iowa — According to Sheldon United Fund spokesperson Cindy Runger, there have been no new donations to the Sheldon United Fund in the last week.
The fund drive is now 79% finished, but the funds are only at about 63% of goal. If donations were keeping up, the total should be over $24,000 by now.
Over $11,500 has yet to be raised. Since donations have been so slow, to finish on goal, the drive now needs to average over $3,300 per week through the rest of the year. Again, in the last week, no donations whatsoever were received.
Contributions may be left at any of the four Sheldon banks, or you can also send them to PO Box 41, Sheldon, IA 51201. Essays explaining each organization are available at the banks.
Each week we’re mentioning a few of the organizations that benefit from your donations. This time the list includes:
- American Red Cross
- Boy Scouts of America
- Children’s World
- Compass Pointe (Northwest Iowa Alcohol & Drug Treatment)
- Dolly Parton Imagination Library
The United Fund will be assisting 25 different organizations in Sheldon and the surrounding communities this year, and they thank you for your contribution.
