This year’s Sheldon United Way fund drive runs through the end of December, and will benefit twenty-five non-profits in Sheldon and surrounding communities, including:
The American Red Cross, which provides help to individuals in O’Brien County who may have lost their home due to a fire, or violent storm.
Sheldon Boy Scouts…their scouts come from the immediate area. The money donated by the United Fund is used to purchase scouting equipment, pay license and insurance bills and provide camperships to help youth attend scouting activities.
Children’s World, which serves families in Sheldon and the outlying regions. They provide child care services for children from 2-weeks to 12-years of age. Children’s World also provides Nursery School and Preschool education services, along with before and after school child care for school age children.
