United Way almost halfway to goal
The United Way of Washington County had reached 48 percent, or $885,810.96, of the 1997 campaign goal of $1,850,000.
In the past week, $103,868 in contributions came in for United Way member agencies, according to Maureen Theriault.
Three campaign divisions are more than half way home.
- The residential division is leading the campaign with 62 percent of its goal achieved. Community residents who are not reached through an employee campaign have so far contributed $59,229.
- The public division, comprised of schools, city and county employees, and other human service organizations has raised $95,598 or 55 percent of its goal.
