One hundred percent of the employees at Breckenridge’s InterBank donated to this year’s United Fund campaign, helping the charity that helps local organizations.

On Tuesday afternoon, the bank’s employees gathered for a celebratory photo, and Luke Grider, community bank president, thanked the employees, as well as the United Fund of Breckenridge’s board of directors.

“We’re thankful for all they do for the community,” Grider said.

United Fund President Sherry Strickland said that, as of this week, the fundraising campaign is at 65 percent of its $16,100 goal for the year.

The United Fund of Breckenridge, Inc., has been benefiting the community for 67 years. Each year, they accept donations from Breckenridge businesses and residents and then distribute the funds to a variety of local organizations. This year, the United Fund will make donations to the following:

  • Break 180
  • Breckenridge Fine Arts Center
  • Cub Scout Girls Troop #72
  • Cub Scout Pack #81
  • Dr. Goodall’s House
  • Friends of Historic Breckenridge
  • Girl Scout Troop #8356
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Stephens County Agriculture & Community Center
  • Stephens County Child Welfare Board
  • Stephens County Humane Society
  • Swenson Memorial Museum

All of the funds collected each year are kept within the community, and the United Fund of Breckenridge is not affiliated with the United Way. To make a donation to the United Fund, send a check to: United Fund of Breckenridge, Inc., P.O. Box 170, Breckenridge, TX 76424. Or, donations may be made online on the United Fund website.
