Great Rivers United Way celebrates $350,000 donation from LHI

A record breaking donation helped the Great Rivers United Way reach its fundraising goal.

Logistics Health employees donated nearly $350,000 during the United Way’s annual campaign.

United Way stopped by to thank the employees Thursday morning with some treats.

LHI is the largest source of funding for the Great Rivers United Way for 2019.

The donation is a 30 percent increase over the company’s 2018 donation.

“A huge, huge impact in our community, thousands of lives are touched every year. As a whole, we impacted about 68 thousand people,” said Heidi Svee, Great Rivers United Way Development Director.

The annual campaign ended at the end of January.
