United Way near 50 percent of goal

POSTED: November 8, 2007 5:00 a.m.
United Way of the Coastal Empire Campaign hits 46 percent of its goal.
With four weeks remaining until the campaign’s conclusion, 2007 Campaign Chair Bert Tenenbaum announced the United Way of the Coastal Empire has raised $3,704,076 of its $8 million goal, representing 46 percent of the total.
The results were reported during a festive Campaign Rally held today in Monterey Square.
Since early September, hundreds of organizations and community volunteers have spent thousands of hours canvassing the four county areas to help the United Way reach its $8 million goal.
Tenenbaum praised donors and volunteers for the campaign’s progress and told the re-energized crowd their hard work and dedication is showing results.
“I’m pleased with the progress we’ve made so far.  I believe we’re on the road to victory,” Tenenbaum said.
The United Way Campaign helps support 37 health and human service agencies that provide 85 programs and services to one out of every three individuals in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty counties.
All proceeds benefit the United Way of the Coastal Empire, whose mission is “to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community.”
