United Way of McLeod County Board President Ron Johnson announced today that the organization delivered $77,284 in checks last week, to 35 partnering agency programs. Those checks represent the second half community investment grants for 2016 United Way funding.
“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the individual donors, small businesses and corporations throughout McLeod County that enable us to distribute these allocation checks,” said Johnson. “We want to thank all who contributed in 2015, because those dollars are being used to fund worthy programs that are making a difference in so many lives in our area.”
“We are so grateful to our supporters that we have been able to deliver over $156,000 in community investment grants this year,” said UWMC Executive Director Paul Thompson. “Those dollars, in addition to direct designations derived from our fundraising efforts, will go toward servicing people with a wide variety of needs throughout McLeod County.”
