Avon Dixon Maintains Its Long-Term Commitment to the United Fund

Since 1957, the Avon Dixon Agency has maintained a proud legacy, demonstrating its support for the United Fund of Talbot County. It recently helped the Fund move closer to realizing its $450,000 goal with a contribution to the 2011-12 campaign.

“The United Fund provides the perfect opportunity to help many agencies with a single gift,” Bill Lane, Avon Dixon Chairman of the Board, pointed out. As a past Fund president and a current United Fund advocate for 20+ years, Lane knows first-hand how much thousands of county residents rely on the services provided by the 22 participating agencies of the United Fund every year. .

As the only local philanthropic organization to support underfunded health and human services needs, the United Fund of Talbot County helps many charities in Talbot County. “Support from businesses such as Avon Dixon is vital to the success of the Fund and the achievement of our mission on behalf of those in need,” concluded Ann Jacobs, Executive Director.
