Eight local community service agencies will receive an influx of funds following a distribution by the United Way of Logan County’s Youth Allocation Committee.
The group is made up of 20 juniors and seniors from county schools, under the direction of United Way volunteers Heidi Reser and Kim Collum. The students were recognized along with their parents Thursday at an appreciation luncheon at Chattan Loch.
