PRINCETON — The Bureau County United Way has moved its office to a new location in Princeton.

“We felt this location, the parking and it being handicapped accessible would make it easier for the clientele we serve,” said Executive Director Andrea Anderson about the move to 618 N. Main St. in Harvest Commons. “We feel this is a perfect location and has more space for us.”

This new office will help the Bureau County United Way move forward in its development and future growth, she added. The board had been discussing a new location prior to Anderson taking over as executive director last August and thought this was an appropriate location to allow the agency to grow.

The United Way works with nonprofit organizations such as the W.D. Boyce Council of the Boy Scouts, Bureau County Food Pantry, Bureau County Health and Wellness Center, Bureau County Senior Citizens Association, Center for Youth and Family Services, Gateway Services and BPART, Girl Scouts of Central Illinois, In-Home Care VNA, IVCIL, Prairie State Legal Services, Red Cross of Bureau County, Salvation Army, and University of Illinois Extension, Bureau County.

The Bureau County United Way’s spring fundraising event will be held Saturday at Four and Twenty Cafe.

For further details, Anderson urges people to call the office at 815-872-0821 or check out the agency’s website at www.unitedwaybc.org.
