United Way reaches 66 percent of its goal

From Staff Reports

   The United Way is slowly but surely inching toward its $190,000 goal. As of this month, the organization has reached 65 percent of the needed total.
   Agencies served by United Way were issued January allocation checks reflecting a 30 percent cut. "Some of these agencies will have difficulty operating with these cuts," said Brenda Wallace, UW executive director.
   Wallace noted that calls to the office have indicated that many of the packets to be distributed by board members and volunteers have not yet been delivered. Some of the packets represent substantial amounts, she said.
   Wallace requested volunteers and board members help get the packets delivered. Also, packets that have been delivered need to be picked up.
   The United Way has rescheduled its January meeting for Jan. 27 at noon at the Executive Office due to the observance of the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr..
