Sheldon United Fund Needs Over $5,500 THIS WEEK

Sheldon, Iowa — Donations to the 2017 Sheldon United Fund will have to top $1000 per day for the next five days for the drive to finish on-goal.

The drive continues through the rest of the month. The goal this year is $31,000.

The fund drive is now 94% finished. But the funds are only at about 82% of goal, at $25,432. Over $5,500 has yet to be raised. In the last week, donors gave $1375.

The board members thank businesses and individuals in Sheldon and the surrounding communities
for their support. They remind you that there are only a few days left in the year to contribute. They also remind potential donors that the money stays local to the 26 organizations. None of it goes to a national organization.

Contributions to any or all of the organizations served by the Sheldon United Fund may be left at five locations in Sheldon: Citizens State Bank, Iowa State Bank, Northstar Community Credit Union, Northwestern Bank, and Peoples Bank, or you can also send them to PO Box 41, Sheldon, IA 51201. Explanations of the organizations are also available at the dropoff points.

Each week we’re mentioning a few of the organizations that can benefit from your donations. This time the list includes:

·Compass Pointe (NW Iowa alcohol & drug treatment)
·Dolly Parton Imagination Library
·Family Crisis Center of Northwest Iowa
·Foster Grandparent Program
·Sheldon Girl Scouts
