The 2014 Harmony Community Chest Drive has been completed. A total of $5,300 was collected via solicitation mailings. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the door-to-door campaign was not conducted this year, so the total collected is down from 2013 and other years. The disbursement of funds was as follows:

Harmony Public Library $450           

Harmony Ambulance $1,900

Harmony Girl Scouts $150

Harmony Boy Scouts $100

Fillmore County DAC $150

Maple Leaf $200

Salvation $700

American Red Cross $500

ARC $400

Courage Center $300

Alzheimer’s Assoc $100

Cystic Fibrosis Found. $100

Arthritis Foundation $150

Multiple Sclerosis Soc. $100

American Cancer Society $100

American Heart Assoc. $100

The ambulance total also includes an individual donation to the Harmony Ambulance for $250.

Organizers gratefully thank the city and Community Chest members for assisting with the mailing. A special Thank You to the Harmony community for its continued financial support. The difference in the amount collected compared to other years underscores the importance of the contribution made by those who do the door-to-door solicitations.

Officers of the Community Chest are Carroll Armstrong, chairman, Carol Rhodes, secretary, and Kay Himlie, treasurer.
