Weigh-In for United Way

October 19, 2006

The United Way of Douglas County once again invites the communities of Eudora and Baldwin to a loose change challenge.

Residents of both communities are encouraged to bring their spare change to the Oct. 26 football game between Eudora and Baldwin at Laws Field in Eudora.

Collection jars will be at each entrance gate of the stadium for football fans to donate their loose change on behalf of their home communities.

The community's jar with the largest contribution by weight will win a traveling "Weigh-In For United Way" trophy, to be awarded during half-time ceremonies.

Total contributions from last year's Weigh In for United Way measured 985 pounds in weight and totaled $2,488. The funds were given to the United Way's member agencies, which offer educational programs and health and human services to Douglas County residents.

Collection jars will be in the Eudora Middle School and Eudora High School offices through Wednesday for those who will not be able to attend the Oct. 26 football game.
