The United Way of Effingham County has received a contribution of more than $10,000 from Dr. Ryan & Sara Jennings.
The money was raised in September through an event hosted at their home. In addition to the Jennings’, the United Way thanked Jeff Frey, Jack Jennings, Stan and Rita Holsapple, Ron Hammer, Sagan Calkins, Chad Arnold, Jon Stremming, Buffalo Wild Wings and the many friends and neighbors from Grupe Subdivision and the neighboring subdivisions supporting the event. This is the 9th year the event was held in support of the United Way.
Ninety nine percent of the funds raised for the United Way stay local. The United Way of Effingham County supports 22 local partner agencies by providing funding.
