United Way of McLeod County Board President Ron Johnson announced today that the regional non-profit will have an exhibit booth at the McLeod County Fair, which takes place August 19-23 in Hutchinson. The five-day run of the fair will serve as the kick-off period to the UWMC’s 2015-16 Campaign.
“It’s important to us that people from throughout the region have a chance to stop by our booth and see the agencies and programs we are partnering with, and to hear about the services they provide,” said Johnson. “The county fair is one of the most exciting times of the year for our organization, in that we get a unique opportunity to let people know what we do, and how we are making a difference in people’s lives.”
“We are happy to be a small part of the McLeod County Fair again this summer,” said UWMC Executive Director Paul Thompson. “This will be our 9th year in the Exhibitor Hall, and each time we have thoroughly enjoyed the chance to answer questions, or hold conversations.”
Johnson announced that the organization would conduct its 2015-16 Campaign in a similar manner to the last few years. The residential, small business, public employees and major firm campaigns will be staggered in monthly increments, beginning the week of August 24. Donations to the 2015-16 Campaign can be made through March 31, 2016.
