Special to Iredell Free News

Organizers of the 2021 Love United Iredell campaign announced Friday afternoon that Doosan Bobcat has agreed to match up to $4,000 in contributions made this weekend.

Love United Iredell – 14 Days of Local Impact is supporting 11 nonprofits through April 25 to complete a small project within Iredell County which, if funded fully, will impact 4,377 lives. Through this effort many partnerships have been formed to strengthen the bonds between agencies and the community. 

Doosan Bobcat organized an auction of equipment that the company is no longer using. Employees could purchase the equipment with all donations going towards Love United Iredell. The auction suprassed its initial goal and so Doosan has decided to share those dollars in hopes that all 11 nonprofits in Love United Iredell reach or surpass their goals.

How the Match Works

The first $4,000 donated after 3 p.m. on Friday, April 16, will be matched dollar for dollar up to $500 per person. This opportunity will be on a first donate-first matched basis. Matched dollars will not apply above the goal of the organization. You can donate now by visiting https://bit.ly/2021LUI or by texting the number 71777 with the message of: 2021LUI.

Doosan Bobcat is one of the many organizations partnering this year to make Love United Iredell a success. A special thanks to all of of the campaign’s sponsors and partners: Randy Marion Chevrolet of Statesville & Randy Marion Ford Lincoln GM, 92.9 & 500 WAME Real Country, GG’s Art Frames Gift, Iredell Free News, Record & Landmark, McDonald’s, Doosan Bobcat, and Iredell Statesville Schools.
