10/15/12 You can dine out the week of October 14 and help a good cause in Marshall County! Nineteen area restaurants are donating a portion of their weekly sales toward the United Way of Marshall County 2012 campaign.  Volunteers across the county are raising funds this fall to support 22 United Way agencies and programs; the goal this year is $475,000. The campaign theme is ‘The Power of WE’ and  participating restaurants are taking it to heart! During the week of Sunday, October 14, through Saturday, October 20, the following restaurants have pledged 1% of their weekly sales toward the United Way campaign.

Edward Christian Dining is taking their effort one step further. On Saturday, October 27, they will be hosting a barbecue fundraiser in conjunction with ‘Drive One for United Way’ sponsored by Oliver Ford. The event is from 9-1 at two locations: Culver High School and Plymouth High School. Tickets are $10 for either a pulled pork or rib tip dinner with a choice of two sides. Tickets are available at the United Way office or may be purchased online at www.marshallcountyuw.org or from any United Way board member or United Way agency (complete listings are on the United Way website.)

“The support of so many business owners across Marshall County is tremendous and the number of restaurants that are participating this year is a great example of the caring and generous spirit of this community,” said Linda Yoder, United Way Executive Director.  “We also want to give  special thanks to Christos’ Banquet Center in Plymouth, Papa’s Restaurant in Culver and the Community Hospital of Bremen Café for donating meals for the three kick off events this year. They really did lead the way for a great campaign season.”

Marshall County residents can choose any day of the week to patronize participating eateries while helping United Way. Yoder urged, “When you do visit a participating restaurant, please let them know you are there because they support United Way.”


For over 50 years, the United Way of Marshall County has continuously conducted annual fundraising campaigns in support of local health and human service not-for-profit organizations. The United Way has been the conduit for helping thousands of individuals, regardless of income level, contribute to a united community cause. United Way volunteers have spent millions of hours advocating for the less fortunate and needy in Marshall County and, as a result, the United Way has allocated more than $8 million to local agencies for everything from basic necessities like food and shelter to tutoring programs for youth to helping the elderly get to the doctor. The United Way of Marshall County remains committed to igniting the caring power of the human spirit to help meet the most basic needs of education, health and financial stability.
