United Drive hits $15,000, two weeks to go

The 2013 Windom United Drive is just a a couple of weeks from wrapping up and the drive already has climbed over the $15,000 mark.

According to Judy Markl of Windom Women of Today, which is spearheading the charity collection again this year, the drive presently has brought in $15,378.

This year's goal is $20,000.

Again, two weeks still remain in the drive. If you have not filled out your donation card and enclosed your donation, simply do so and return it by Dec. 31.

If you have misplaced your card, cards and envelopes are available at Bank Midwest, Bank of the West, United Prairie Bank and the Windom Area Chamber of Commerce.

A total of 28 organizations are listed on the donor card. Simply write the amount you would like to donate next to the organization and enclose a check for the total amount on the card.

If you would like to donate and not specify a charity, that money is divided evenly among all the charities.
Write-ins are also accepted. However, for a write-in charity to receive any funds, it must receive at least $20.

Anyone who did not receive a card in the mail, but would like to have one sent to them in the future can simply pick up a card at one of the four aforementioned Windom locations. Then, write your name and address on the card and your name will be added to next year's mailing list.

This year's goal is $20,000.

Last year's drive was up slightly from the previous year. A total of $21,153 was donated in 2012 and, after expenses, a total of $18,951 was disbursed to 39 different organizations.
