United Way Reaches Fundraising Goal For 4th Year In A Row
The Fond du Lac Area United Way reached its $745,000 fundraising goal with a little room to spare. United Way Executive Director Tina Potter says it was a busy last couple weeks of the campaign and they reached out to some, but in the end made the goal they set for 2014. She says in the end they actually went over by about $1,500 to reach their goal for the fourth year in a row. She says now they can allocate the money to the 24 to 26 agencies they help fund each year. The agencies supported by the United Way help out up to 36,000 people in the community through their programs.
