Plymouth, Indiana – Volunteers are gearing up for a blitz of area businesses in support of the 2014 United Way of Marshall County fund drive. Blitz volunteers will gather at 9 am on Wednesday, October 1, at Community Hospital of Bremen Café, 1020 High Road, Bremen as well as 9 am on Friday, October 3, at Opie’s Deli, 114 N Michigan St, Plymouth.
This year’s campaign theme is “Power of We” and the goal is to raise $550,000 to support programs and services of 24 local agencies that are working every day to improve the quality of life for all county residents. Thanks to our Cornerstone Partners, today we are happy to say ninety two cents of every dollar donated to the United Way of Marshall County goes directly back to our community.
Blitz volunteers will meet for coffee and training with United Way prior to hitting the streets to deliver information about United Way agencies, programs and services. They will meet back at the Community Hospital of Bremen Café at noon on Wednesday, October 1 and Opie’s Deli at noon on Friday, October 3.
