United Way Campaign Reaches 84%
United Way of Southern Chautauqua County recently reported reaching eighty four percent of its $1,325,000 goal. Many workplace campaigns have come to an end and efforts are now focused on closing the final gap. “These next few weeks are critical. We hope to finish strong and we will not be able to achieve that without the support from our community,” stated Jane Becker, Campaign Chair. “Volunteers and staff have worked hard to ensure campaign accounts arrive timely and successfully. As a result, we remain in a positive position overall but still have work to do,” continued Becker.
United Way anticipates the 2017 Campaign to wrap up by the end of January. “Year-end giving is critical to the successful completion of the campaign,” stated Amy Rohler, Executive Director. “As we enter into the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, we want to remind individuals and businesses that there are still opportunities to support the 2017 Campaign,” continued Rohler.
