United Way leaders seek business contributions

United Way of Franklin County leaders have set aside dollars to send interested county youth to Camp Riley since 2002, reports UWFC Vice President Robin Lee. One to three children per year have attended with an overall total of 17.

The weeklong summer camp at Bradford Woods, Martinsville, is for Hoosier children 6-18 with physical disabilities. She explains, “It offers traditional camping experiences for kids with physical challenges and the opportunity to meet others with similar disabilities. Each activity is customized to the individual needs of the children, motivating them to overcome obstacles and reach new heights.”

According to Lee, “We raise our funds to sponsor our camper(s) through sales of raffle tickets during the summer months, concluding with a winner drawn the week of the Franklin County 4-H Fair.” The prizes have varied from electronics to gas cards. This year UWFC volunteers are going to create a collection of gift certificates that promote spending in the area community as the prizes to be raffled.

United Way officials are asking business owners and managers to participate by donating gift certificates that can be spent in their or other local businesses. The deadline to donate items is July 1. They can be dropped off at the office. Hours are Tuesday-Wednesday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and Thursday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Contributions also can be mailed to United Way of Franklin County, 527 Main St., Suite 1, Brookville, IN 47012.

Lee has details at 765-265-8341.
