— The North Rock County United Way fund drive is in full swing and campaign officials are calling attention to its status.

Co-chair for this year's campaign, Mike O'Brien, says several local campaigns are showing increases in giving over last year including Target, Sanford Business to Business, Catholic Charities, and Dean Health System. He says they're at nearly 30% of the $1.35 million goal.


O'Brien says the campaign is just about where they expected it to be at this point. O'Brien says many of the companies participating in the drive are finding unique ways to get their employees involved to overcome economic hardships. He says anyone can give to the fund at any time during the year, but the traditional end to the annual employee drive is right after Thanksgiving.


O'Brien says if you're not giving through a company plan, you can still participate by giving on line at www.uwnrc.org
