Local communities ‘weigh in’ for United Way

September 27, 2007

The United Way of Douglas County is again inviting the communities of Eudora and Baldwin City to a loose change challenge.

Collection jars will be located in the office for anyone to donate their loose change.

Resident of both communities also are encouraged to bring their spare change to the Oct. 25 high school football game between Eudora and Baldwin at Baker University. Collection jars will be at the entrance gates of the stadium for fans to donate their 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 halftime ceremonies.

Eudora has won the competition for the last three years.

This year's theme is "It Takes All of Us to Make a Difference." The campaign continues through mid-November.
