Project Description

Your donations will be allocated to our 12 different agencies to help them provide services to the Southwest Nebraska area.  A local volunteer McCook Community Chest Board decides how much money is allocated to each agency.  Allocation volunteers visit with each of the agencies and review their programs and budgets annually to assure that every dollar is well spent.  Your dollars will create a better tomorrow for the citizens of McCook and Southwest Nebraska.
