A local organization is looking to add members that want to help the community.  Community Chest of Washington Board of Directors member, Susan Wellington 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.  Wellington adds they are looking to welcome additional groups for next year’s campaign.

She notes all of the current members will automatically receive those forms.  This campaign for next year will start in the fall, but local nonprofits have until Monday to sign up.  For more information, contact Community Chest of Washington at (319) 653-2048  or PO Box 86, Washington.
