Wabash Residential Drive
For the 49th year, the men of Wabash College will join with the Montgomery County United Fund to go door-to-door throughout Crawfordsville collecting donations for the 2019 Montgomery County United Fund campaign. This year, the Wabash Residential Drive will take place again in October, with the date yet to be determined.
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.
We are so appreciative of the efforts of Wabash College to support the Montgomery County United Fund. The community’s willingness to help support our partner agencies is greatly enhanced by the efforts of the Wabash students and staff.
Jim Brown, Professor of Physics at Wabash, who has led the drive for the last several years, stated “Beyond the classroom, Wabash College strives to help young men to live humanely, to lead effectively, and to act responsibly. That these young men will step up to aid those that the United Fund helps in their adopted hometown speaks to these core values and to the individual character of our students.”
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.
Residents are requested to turn on their porch lights to show their support of these efforts. Drive participants will be in teams of two or three students and wearing Wabash College clothing.
