A $730,000 goal and the United Way Alliance of the Mid-Ohio Valley raised almost $770,000 to fund three different programs.
Marie Foster Gnage of the United Way Board of Governors says to fund local agencies and programs that significantly contribute to the health and wellness of the Mid-Ohio Valley.
Also, to provide emergency response funds to their agencies if needed and to fund United Way Alliance operations.
“Your dollars paid here are contributed here, stay here in the Mid-Ohio Valley to help out these causes,” Gnage says. “Considering the economic times, we are quite proud of what we've been able to accomplish.”
Looking forward, Gnage says they hope the generosity will continue because there will be another campaign.
In the meantime, many of their affiliated agencies will benefit from this.
