Strong pace set for local United Way fund drive

DIXON – Just days into its fundraising campaign, United Way of Lee County is at 20 percent of its $406,000 goal.

That’s because donations from the agency’s Pacesetters were $79,441, it was announced at Saturday’s kickoff event, held in downtown Dixon in conjunction with Scarecrow Festival.

Raynor Garage Doors employees led Pacesetters donations with $36,524, up 13 percent from last year. Other donations announced were Donaldson ($22,000), Anchor Coupling ($10,175), Ken Nelson Auto Mall ($1,693), and Lee County Council on Aging ($2,354). The donations from Donaldson, Anchor Coupling and the Council on Aging were comparable or slightly more than previous years, United Way of Lee County said in a news release.

Results will be announced next week of additional donations from Ken Nelson from its promotion this week of $10 per oil change going to United Way.

Four report sessions for volunteers on the fundraising campaign are planned, the first scheduled for Oct. 9 at Midland States Bank, 101 W. First St., Dixon.
