February 29, 2008|By DON AINES

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - On the final day of its 2007-08 campaign, the United Way of Franklin County reached its goal of $750,000, according to Executive Director Amy Hicks.

A caller pledging $2,000 Friday morning put the campaign over the top, according to a United Way press release. The donor has chosen to remain anonymous.

The United Way provides funding to 27 nonprofit organizations in the county, including WIN Victim Services, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Lutheran Home Care and Hospice, and the American Red Cross.

About 10 days ago, Hicks said the United Way was about $25,000 shy of the goal. The goal was $715,000 last year, she said.

"We weren't sure we were going to make it, but it's gratifying that Franklin County is so generous," Campaign Chairman Chuck Frame said in the announcement. "We're appreciative to the many residents who gave money or time or both."
