Because times are tough for many Kane area families, the Kane Area United Fund more than ever needs workers and employers to step forward this year with contributions.
Donations collected during the annual United Fund drive go to 18 community-service organizations.
Without the United Fund assistance, some of these organizations would need to eliminate or reduce the services they provide.
â€śEvery dollar you give goes right back into our local community in the form of services,â€ť United Fund Board President Jennifer Macey said. â€śNo donation is too small.â€ť
