In just seven months the United Way Alliance of the Mid-Ohio Valley raised nearly eight-hundred-thousand dollars, that's over 60-thousand more than the goal.
The MOV United way funds local agencies and programs the significantly contribute to the health and wellness of the MOV, provide emergency response funds to our emergency agencies if needed, and fund United Way office.
The United Way Alliance says it's because of the support of the community that they are able to support so many organizations.
"The combined boards made a commitment to all of our communities that we serve to continue fundraising efforts to better the entire Mid Ohio Valley during 2011, individuals and businesses alike found a way to step up to the plate and give their communities funds. It's you we want to say thank you to," explains the board chairman, Kristy Swisher.
The MOV United Way Alliance has not met their goal since 2009, they say this is definitely one of their biggest fundraisers.
