United Way Falls Short Of Campaign Goal

United Way logoNot all work is completed in the 2013 United Way Campaign, but at Thursday’s victory dinner officials conceded they had fallen short of their goal.

About 200 community leaders celebrated the very significant generosity from thousands of people in the area. The campaign has raised $3,255,680 toward their goal of $3.33 million.

Volunteers will continue trying to secure contributions, wrapping up Campaign work over the next several weeks.

“Our community gave, and lives will be improved because of these donations,” said Kylee Strough, President of United Way. “We thank every single donor because every gift allows United Way and United Way Partner Agencies to improve lives.”

United Way of Greater St. Joseph operates seven initiatives and programs and supports 19 local partner agencies.
