It’s that time of year again, for the Toole County Combined Fund Drive! Each year, community volunteers give of their time and energy to organize a one-time, community–wide fundraising campaign. These very deserving organizations from throughout Toole County are represented in the campaign. They include the following:
Shelby Girl Scouts, Shelby Swim Team, Toole County Youth Soccer, Shelby Baseball Association, Hi-Line Help for Abused Spouses, Multiple Sclerosis Association, North Toole County Youth Program, Sagebrush Food Pantry, Toole County Crimestoppers, Toole County Friends of the Library, Recycle Shelby, Prairie Oasis Animal Shelter, Center for Mental Health, The Carousel Rest Area of Shelby, Toole County Garden Club, Alzheimer’s Association, American Cancer Society and Toole County Performing Arts & Entertainment.
Last year the Toole County Combined Fund Drive only raised $12,675 that was divided between these organizations. This was much lower than previous years, so we hope you will thoughtfully consider a contribution this year. Funds are used for your children’s sports programs and scouting programs, recycling in our community, funds to keep the Carousel turning, pet food and supplies for the animal shelter, assistance to those affected by abuse and crime and national organizations that research and fight devastating illness that affect all of us.
By combining these public appeals into one campaign, it makes for the best use of resources, time and energy and provides a simple method for all of us to give to so many worthwhile organizations.
