The Wabash Rotary Club has continued its long tradition of supporting the Wabash County United Fund campaign. And although this year’s golf outing was canceled, Wabash Rotary will still be supporting Wabash County United Fund (WCUF), according to Steve Johnson, WCUF executive director.
Community members can participate in one of two ways. They may donate any amount to the Wabash Rotary Club or they can sponsor one of three levels toward the “No Outing Golf Outing”:
$100 Par Level: Recognized on Rotary and United Fund Facebook pages, and receive a Business Sponsor sign and one golf ball sleeve.
$250 Birdie Level: Recognized on Rotary and United Fund Facebook pages, and receive a Business Sponsor sign, two golf ball sleeves and a two-person round of golf with a cart.
$500 Hole-in-one Level: Recognized on Rotary and United Fund Facebook pages, and receive a Business Sponsor sign, guest invite to a Rotary Club meeting and lunch recognition, four Golf ball sleeves and four-person Round of golf with a cart.
All donations or sponsorships may be payable to the Wabash Rotary Club by mail at P.O. Box 159, Wabash, IN 46992. All sponsors and donors will be recognized in follow-up announcements.
The United Fund Board of Directors has approved 19 local agencies for participation in the next funding cycle. Applicants for funding typically fall into one of the three United Fund focus areas of education, health and financial stability. Agency programs must include services to low- and lower-middle-income families.
Agencies with education-related programs that will receive funding include The Access Youth Center, Manchester Early Learning Center and Wabash FAME.
Agencies with qualifying health-related programs that will receive funding include 85 Hope, Blessings in a Backpack (Wabash and North Manchester), Community Cupboard Food Pantry, Hands of Hope, Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry and Wabash County Tobacco Free Coalition.
Agencies with qualifying financial stability-related programs include Advantage Housing, ARC of Wabash County, Wabash County Transit, Pathfinder Services Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, Community Assistance Program/WAMA, Lighthouse Mission, Wabash County Cancer Society, Roann Community Building, Urbana Community Building and Somerset Community Building.
Pledges and funds raised during the 2020 Campaign will be distributed to the agencies throughout the 2021 calendar year.
