UGF had successful 2019 effort

By BOB BECKLEY,

Dear Editor,

What is Newton United Givers Fund?  Newton UGF has been collecting donations and distributing financial assistance to local agencies and organizations for over 60 years!

The Newton UGF Board of Directors are volunteers that coordinate all activities, and the Newton Chamber of Commerce Director administers the collection and distribution of the funds.  Over 40 local agencies will receive funds to be distributed on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, at the historic Newton Depot!  Those agencies include the Scouts, Fire Departments, schools, libraries, and many other worthy organizations.

The 2018/2019 drive was a great success!  Over $40,000.00 was donated by individuals and local businesses.  The Board of Directors are very thankful & grateful for your support of the Newton United Givers Fund.  We are very blessed to be a part of this great countywide community. 

Bob Beckley

Newton UGF Chairman
