Giving Tuesday

Tuesday, December 1st, is giving Tuesday. I would like to encourage you to consider a gift to the United Way of Franklin County. This has been an unusual year and very difficult to do typical fundraising in a pandemic. Our typical corporate campaign has also suffered less giving.

The pandemic only exposed more issues in our community to address. The United Way has worked to address some of these issues working with USDA for food box distribution and a remote learning center. We have worked and obtained some grants, but it just won’t be enough to help all that need a helping hand in our community.

I am asking you to consider giving to the Franklin County United Way. You can give electronically at or you can put a check in the mail to :

United Way of Franklin County, PO Box 233, Ottawa, KS 66067

Thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity,

~Richard Oglesby, Board Chair
