Copeland has been a supporter of the RCUF for many years. The company not only donated money during the campaign drive, but donated to other activities during the year. Because of the administration’s support, payroll deduction from employees is one of the highest among the business that support RCUF. Over the last three years, the company and their employees have given the RCUF more than $52,000. The employees alone have contributed more than $12,000. This is remarkable given the economy and the decline in giving, overall.
Earl Jacobs has worked closely with RCUF until his retirement late last year. His support was appreciated, and the RCUF wish him well in his retirement. Mitchell Fannon, Plant Controller is the new contact person.
The RCUF met with Mitch and the Plant Manager, Bruce Schmalfeldt. Representing RCUF was Vice President Jane Smiley, CPA and Dr. Dennis Bowman, Executive Director. Copeland presented RCUF with a check for $10,000. This help increases the amount of money the RCUF is able to give the eight agencies it supports. All the agencies are reporting decreases in funding which affect the services able to supply the elderly and children in the community. As a result, the RCUF Board will be able to meet the requests of the agencies it supports. The Board of Directors, as well as Footprints, Boys and Girls Club, Salvation Army, Food Pantry, Rush County Victims Assistance Program Senior Center and MoRE wish to thank Copeland and its employees for the generous giving to the programs.
