United Way Fundraising Campaign Begins

United Way of Siouxland is kicking off its annual fund-raising drive.The campaign got underway this morning at the Siouxland Center for Active Generations.The goal for this year's campaign is to exceed 3.3 million dollars.The United Way partners with more than 30 organizations that help them achieve goals of advancing education, income and the health of the community."United Way and these agencies are good stewards of their generous financial contributions, because without the contributions from the community none of this works. If we can tell the story that the Siouxland community has been very generous in the past. We think that will continue in the future," said Campaign Chair Douglas Rice.The United Way already has pledges of 400-thousand dollars towards this year's goal.
