The Barry County United Way concluded this year’s campaign with a pancake breakfast to thank the community for their participation. Campaign Co‐Chairperson Sheryl Lewis Blake especially thanked the campaign cabinet that hit the ground running in September by visiting businesses throughout our community to ask for their support.
This year’s campaign cabinet consisted of Campaign Co‐Chairs Sheryl Lewis Blake and Jim Blake, with their campaign team of Michael Anton, Emily Bond, Pat Buckland, Bob Byington, Rebecca Fleury, Chris Fluke, Dr. Jason Gole, Shane McNeill, Tom Mohler, Keith Murphy, Tammy Pennington, Carl Schoessel, Robin Welton, Dr. Carrie Wilgus and Patty Woods.
Lani Forbes, Executive Director of Barry County United Way stated, “The awards are our way of saying thank you. Without each of these gifts our allocations committee would not have been able to fund 28 programs with grants between $1,000 and $75,000 based on their requests. Last year over 87,000 times these programs were accessed by residents of our community. These awards are just a small token of the appreciation felt by each of us!”
