United Way Extends Contribution Deadline

The United Way may reach it's goal after all, now that the foundation has decided to extend its deadline through the Thanksgiving holiday.

Earlier this week, the United Way was still a $100,000 short of its goal. Since then the agency has rallied to close the gap. As of Friday afternoon, the United Way had achieved 97% of its $4.5 million goal.

United Way in Critical Need
Fulfilling the needs of this community, that's what the United Way does. But this year donations have fallen short. In fact, United Way officials are saying it's a critical situation. The deadline is Friday and right now they are more than $100,000 below their goal.
