2020 Holstein Community Chest begins annual fund drive

Fall is here and it is time again to conduct the annual Holstein Community Chest Fund Drive. Through the generous support of many Holstein area citizens and business donors, $12,390 was raised last year and $12,730 was disbursed to many worthwhile organizations. 

Following are the organizations that benefited from the Holstein Community Chest last year: Holstein Fire and Ambulance Department, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Eagle Scout project, G-H Music Parents, Holstein community Easter egg hunt, transient fund, Centers Against Abuse and Sexual Assault (CAASA), Ridge View After Prom, Kinderfest, Ridge View dance squad, Holstein Swimming Pool, children’s summer theatre, Holstein Community Food Basket for Families in Need, G-H Scholarship Fund, Holstein Heritage Foundation, Holstein Good Samaritan Auxiliary, State Theatre, G-H backpack program, Holstein American Legion Post 225 and City of Holstein new taxi fund.

Consider making a donation again this year. The community is stronger because of your generous giving. Your donations qualify as charitable donations for income tax purposes. Any amount you give is gratefully appreciated.

Donations may be mailed to or dropped off at Availa Bank, United Bank of Iowa or at city hall.

If you have any questions concerning this year’s fund drive, you may contact any of the board members: Ramona Schuett, Karla Henderson, Allen Fitch, Lynette Henry, Christine Wiese and Kiley Todd.
