Lenawee United Way distributes funds to area groups
The Lenawee United Way Board of Directors recently approved the program funding recommendation of the Community Fund Distribution committee for 2012.
Each year, the Lenawee United Way provides funds to nonprofit programs in Addison, Blissfield, Britton, Clinton, Deerfield, Hudson, Morenci, Onsted, Sand Creek and Tecumseh through the Community Fund Distribution grants process. The funds available each year are based on dollars raised through Lenawee United Way’s annual fundraising campaign.
The programs that received funding in the Britton and Tecumseh areas for 2012 include: Tecumseh Service Club, $17,000; God’s Breadbasket’s “Dinner on Us” program, $4,441; Communities in Schools of the Tecumseh Area, $7,000; and Britton-Deerfield Schools Band Boosters, $602.
The Community Fund Distribution process has been a part of the mission of Lenawee United Way as a way of reaching the needs specific to each community “to create a measurably better life for the people of Lenawee County.”
The Lenawee United Way will also be hosting an “Income Day of Action” on Wednesday, Nov. 7, with volunteers from the Tecumseh Kiwanis, First Federal Bank, and Bank of America working to winterize homes for senior citizens of Tecumseh. The activities will begin with a rally for volunteers at 8 a.m. at the Tecumseh United Methodist Church on Bishop Reed Drive in Tecumseh.
