CHENANGO COUNTY – Winding down, Chenango United Way’s 2008 campaign has reached another milestone, beating last year’s total by at least $12,000 – and there are still a few days to go.
The Chenango United Way’s 2008 campaign will conclude on Dec. 31, but already the organization has raised $441,663 locally. That beats last year’s local total of $429,560. In addition the organization has received a total of $38,810 of donations designated to Chenango County from other United Ways. Chenango United Way Executive Director Elizabeth Monaco explained that many of the donations came from residents of Cincinnati, Ohio. She said this has been a regular occurrence since Procter & Gamble began transferring employees from Norwich to that area.
