Stateline United Way fund goal set
Campaign Chair, Dale Reeves, says that's higher than last year, and considering the economy, is a bold move. But Reeves says they did their homework before deciding on the figure by talking with company officials.
Reeves says an early positive sign is a huge boost from pace-setter companies. They have already collected 21% of the goal.
The "Day of Caring" has been linked to the United Way kick-off for several years now and it's popularity is growing. Reeves says over 300 volunteers committed themselves to work on community service projects Wednesday.
