Plymouth, Indiana – The United Way of Marshall County 2014 Campaign is underway! This year’s Campaign Chairs were announced recently and dubbed by United Way campaign organizers as the “Sensational Seven.” Included on this year’s team are Donna Burroughs (Triton School Corporation), Pam Mahler-Lee (Anythyme Herbs, Inc.), Ginny Munroe (Deadline Driven Publishing), Cindy Rash (Midwest Ag Finance), Debi Sahlhoff (State Farm, Bremen), Jeannette Teall (RE/MAX Oak Crest Realty), and Susan Wagner(Retired from Plymouth Community School Corporation). This year’s campaign goal is to raise $550,000, all of which will stay in Marshall County to provide health and human services through community initiatives and funding support for 24 partner agencies.
“We have a strong team again this year to lead the campaign,” said United Way Executive Director Linda Yoder. “And there are many others who are providing much needed support as well. It truly is a volunteer effort.”
Throughout the campaign, the United Way of Marshall County will give presentations at local area businesses. Every dollar counts to help meet basic needs for a good life: a quality education that leads to a good job, income that can support a family through retirement and good health. United Way volunteers are sharing the theme “The Power of We” with individuals and organizations across the county. And their message is clear: WE build the strength of our neighborhoods. WE bolster the health of our communities. And WE change the lives of those who walk by us every day. If you would like to learn more, schedule a presentation, or make a donation, please contact the United Way of Marshall County, located at 2701 N Michigan Street in Plymouth, or call 574.936.3366 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
