2012 United Way Campaign A Success
Members of the United Way of Central Illinois call 2012 a successful campaign year. Volunteers and community members raised more than $2,855,000 to support health and human service programs in Sangamon County. The announcement was made this morning at the 91st annual breakfast.
The United Way's annual campaign remains the community's largest fundraising effort.
President John Kelker said he's grateful for the continued support.
"It shows how much the community cares and how much they understand we need a network of health and human service programs here," Kelker said.
In 2012, a total of 406 volunteers participated in more than 40 service projects, and 17 area companies hosted internal office campaigns.
