Annual Report of the United Way of Logan County, IL

Calendar Year 2017 

Strengthening Logan County by brining the community together. 


2017 Your Investments in Action

Gifts to The United Way of Logan County are investments in our community.  One of the 15 programs that United Way helps support is Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois’ Senior Nutrition Program (Meals On Wheels). Thanks to United Way support,  more residents like Jeanette Chapman can be served.  Jeanette poses below with Becky Leamon, CAPCIL’s Nutrition Services Director and Director of the Meals on Wheels Program in Logan County.


Jeanette explains “I was diagnosed with R.P. which is known as Retinitis Pigmentosa as a small child.  Since then I have gone totally blind.  I am unable to do things I used to do.  I appreciate Community Action Meals on Wheels very much.  I have to say their drivers are very understanding and kind to me.  I am very thankful they have this program.


Thanks for all you do for Logan County.”
