United Way prepares for annual fundraising campaign

Posted by wlpo on August 19, 2013

When you support the United Way of the Illinois Valley you’re indirectly supporting the Illinois Valley Food Pantry, the Lighted Way, the Horizon House and many other non-profit organizations.

The local United Way kicks off their annual fundraising campaign Saturday.   Executive Director Julie Sloan says their goal is to raise $355,000 for 17 agencies.

To begin their money-raising efforts they’re hosting the I Pull for the United Way Saturday at the Illinois Valley Regional Airport in Peru.  Teams of 10 will pull a Maze Lumber truck, a John Deer tractor and a crane from Catani Crane.  Teams are still being accepted.
