United Way sets $360,000 campaign target
Saturday, September 21, 2013 5:00 AM
The Jefferson County United Way officially kicked off its 2014 fundraising campaign Friday, setting a goal of $360,000.
The goal is $10,000 more than last year's goal, which was met in February.
Part of the reason for the increase is because the United Way has added an additional group it will fund. Big Brothers/Big Sisters is the newest addition to the list.
"The need is extremely big in our county, and we want to provide more," said Steve Telfer, the United Way executive board president.
The 14 agencies the United Way supports are: The American Red Cross, Southeastern Indiana Independent Living Center, Boy Scouts of America Hoosier Trails Council, Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana Council, Girls Inc., Lifetime Resources/Sentry Services, Retired Senior Volunteer Program, Lide White Boys and Girls Club, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Salvation Army, Turning Point, Casa Amiga, Southwestern Recreation Association and the USO.
Telfer said the goal is to raise all of the funds by Christmas. They've currently raised about 30 percent of their goal.
Aside from Telfer, the other members of the United Way's executive board are Stephanie Withered, vice president; Jay Roney, campaign drive chair; Mark Cheatham, assistant drive chair; and Erin Kindle, treasurer.
