As the United Fund of Breckenridge wrapped up it’s 2022-23 fundraising season, the local United Supermarket presented the organization with a check for the donations by the employees.

The donation of $3,231 makes United Supermarket the largest contributor to this year’s campaign, according to United Fund President Sherry Strickland. “It makes a difference,” she said about the employees’ donations.

This year, the United Fund had a goal of $19,800, and they raised 85 percent of that goal by the end of the campaign, Strickland said. The organization has enough money in their account to fulfill all of their obligations to the local groups they help support. “Sometimes we don’t make our goal, but we always make our obligations to the organizations,” Strickland said. “We just start out the next year a little bit lower.”

This year, the United Fund supported the following organizations:

• Breckenridge Fine Arts Center
• Breckenridge Library
• Breckenridge Little League, Inc.
• Cub Scouts Pack #81
• Dr. Goodall’s House
• Friends of Historic Breckenridge
• Girl Scouts #8356
• Meals on Wheels
• Stephens County Ag & Community Center
• Stephens County Child Welfare Board
• Stephens County Humane Society
• Swenson Memorial Museum
• The Open Door
• The School Health Advisory Committee (SHAC)

“We’re very appreciative of everyone who donated this year,” Strickland said.

The 2023-24 fundraising campaign starts this month and will continue through September 2024. Campaign donation cards will be going out in the mail soon, and donors may also make donations on the United Fund’s website (click here).

The United Fund is a local organization that collects funds to support several Breckenridge and Stephens County organizations. For more information, visit the website or Facebook page.
