United Way sets higher goal

The United Way scaled back its fundraising goal in 2008 in expectancy of lower donations due to a failing economy.

In 2007, the goal was $450,000. It was dropped to $425,000 in 2009.

“We blew it out the top, despite a tough economy, and raised $427,000,” campaign chairman Jeff Triplette said at the United Way annual campaign kick-off luncheon on Wednesday. “That was above our goal.”

This year’s goal is $465,000. (September 16, 2010, Page 1)
