Harmony Community Chest campaign helps local organizations


Mon, Jul 20th, 2015
Posted in Harmony Features

The 2015 Harmony Community Chest Drive will start its solicitation campaign In August this year. We will be using the same approach as in recent years. This entails solicitation letters and envelopes being sent out with Harmony’s utility bills. Hopefully, people will respond with donations by mail or drop them off at the Community Center with their utility bills; the door-to-door solicitations will be needed only for those who do not send in a contribution.

Currently in its 64th year of existence, the Harmony Community Chest is a small town version of United Way. Our purpose is to collect and distribute donations to various deserving groups, with an emphasis on local organizations. With one donation people are able to give to the following local groups: Camp Winnebago, Harmony Public Library, Harmony Ambulance, Harmony Girl Scouts, Harmony/Preston Boy Scouts, Fillmore County DAC, Maple Leaf Supervised Living Services of Fillmore County, Fillmore County Salvation Army, ARC of SE Minn. (which provides places and jobs for disadvantaged people), and our local Alzheimer’s Ass’n. Other regional donations are sent to SE Minn. American Red Cross; Cystic Fibrosis Foundation; North Central Arthritis Foundation; Multiple Sclerosis Society, Minn. Chapter: Midwest American Cancer Society: and American Heart Association, Midwest. Ninety-nine per cent of the money donated goes to these organizations, with 1% being used to finance the costs of our drive.

If you do not receive a Harmony utility bill and wish to make a donation, you may do so by sending your contribution to: Harmony Community Chest, 225 3rd St. SW, Harmony, Minn. 55939. Indicate with your donation if you would like a receipt.

Officers of the Community Chest Board are Carroll Armstrong, chairperson; Carol Rhodes, secretary; and Kay Himlie, treasurer. Other board members are Phil Burkholder, Diane Strahl, Bonnie Bakken, Muriel Gunderson, Gerri Ehler, Pam Hoppe, Renee Reicks, and Renee Olson.

The financial support of Harmony residents and the surrounding community is vital to the continued existence of the Community Chest and its support of local organization, as well as regional ones. Please respond to our solicitation with a donation to support all of the above-mentioned groups. Hopefully, a wide and generous response to our solicitation letter will eliminate the need for a door-to-door campaign.
