Sheldon, Iowa — According to Sheldon United Fund spokesperson Cindy Runger, over $1700 was given to the Sheldon United Fund in the last week, but the fund still needs a big boost to finish on goal.
The fund drive is now 85% finished, but the funds are still only at about 68% of goal. If donations were keeping up, the total should be over $26,000 by now.
Nearly $10,000 has yet to be raised. Since donations have been so slow, to finish on goal, the drive now needs to average over $4,000 per week through the rest of the year.
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:
- Family Crisis Centers of Northwest Iowa
- Foster Grandparent Program
- Girl Scouts
- His Little Ones Preschool
- Love In the Name of Christ (Love, Inc)
The United Fund will be assisting 25 different organizations in Sheldon and the surrounding communities this year, and they thank you for your contribution.
