Lights on for MCUF drive


For more than 40 years, the men of Wabash College have joined with the Montgomery County United Fund to go door-to-door throughout Crawfordsville collecting donations for the United Fund annual campaign. This year, the MCUF/Wabash Residential Drive will take place 5:30-7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Since 1970, every freshman class of Wabash men has participated in the drive raising over $150,000 to assist area non-profits in providing valuable services to the people of Montgomery County. Funds raised each year help to support agencies that provide educational services to preschool children, preventive services to teenagers and pre-teens, and services to adults in need throughout Montgomery County.

Eric Olofson, Associate Professor of Psychology at Wabash, will be leading the drive this year.

“Wabash College is excited to continue our tradition of helping the Montgomery County United Fund raise money for local nonprofit agencies that serve our community,” Olofson said. “These agencies are an important part of the fabric of Montgomery County, and we are privileged to be able to give back to a community that gives so much to the College and our students. I hope you will greet our young men with a smile and help us support our wonderful partner agencies.”

Residents are requested to turn on their porch lights Sunday evening to show their support of these efforts. Drive participants will be in teams of two or three students and wearing Wabash College clothing.
