Shelby County Community Chest


Shelby County Community Chestís annual drive assists agencies that provide valuable services to our youth, area residents and communities. The Shelby County Community Chest has designed an efficient, convenient way for you to assist different agencies at one time through our campaign. Youíll probably agree that this is a much better system than having each individual group knocking at your door for donations. You may also want to ask your employer about utilizing payroll deduction Ė itís easy and convenient.

thanks to you, we can make a difference in the lives of many deserving individuals in our area.
