A local organization is hoping to add members that are looking to help the community. Secretary and Treasurer of the Community Chest of Washington, Roberta Lampkin says Community Chest is a group that provides funding for nonprofit organizations that acts in a similar way as the United Way does in a larger city. The Community Chest has been helping nonprofits since 1947, and currently supports many different area organizations.
Lampkin adds they are looking to welcome additional groups for next year’s campaign, which will start this fall. She notes all of the current members will automatically receive those forms. Area nonprofits looking for more information should contact Roberta Lampkin at Community Chest of Washington at (319) 653-2048 or PO Box 86 in Washington.
