2010.12.22 Tom Spiess: United Way report

Written by David Green.

This past fall, the United Way of Fulton County initiated a fund-raising goal of $305,000 to meet a portion of the needs of the nearly 30 agencies that it supports and the internal programs that it sponsors. 

It was an aggressive goal established by community needs, not committee wants.

Despite the lingering pressures of a weak economy, citizens have responded to the call.

With less than two weeks left in the 2010 Fulton County United Way Campaign, we are within $10,000 of our goal.

First of all, we thank all of those who have contributed for their generosity during a year filled with challenges that ranged from tornado relief to food pantry support. 

Secondly, we would ask those who have not yet made a financial commitment to consider a gift to the 2010 United Way Campaign.

Rest assured, your gift, regardless of size, will be appreciated and put to good use.

Best Wishes for a Merry Christmas and happy holiday season.

– Tom Spiess

Chairman, Fulton County United Way
