The United Fund started its annual campaign drive on Nov. 1 for the year of 2015. We find ourselves behind in meeting weekly goals to reach the $50,000 that is needed to support the United fund agencies. So far, we have received donations and pledges that equal approximately 48% of what is needed. We would encourage everyone in the Ellwood City area to reflect on what they may share with others who are less fortunate than ourselves, so we can make a difference int heir lives.
The Ellwood City United Fund has been serving the community for over 50 years. Just one donation from you will provide funds to the many agencies who serve our community. It is always hard and disappointing to know that we will have to possibly cut necessary funding to our agencies, when our friends and neighbors are in need of services.
Also, at this time of the holiday season you receive multiple requests almost everyday to give to various charities. This sometimes can be very confusing because you can not give to every one that makes a request. Your one donation to the United fund shares your gift with all ten of our agencies that serve the needs of our community. Your gift whether large or small will directly benefit those close to you and others in the community. Your compassion and understanding has always been what makes Ellwood City a great place to live.
More than ever, we need your continued support this year and into the future. Thank you for caring!
