United Way misses goal, but raises more than last year

NORWICH – Showing a sense of optimism, the Chenango County United Way announced the results of its support campaign and a breakdown of allocations earlier this week.

When the United Way announced in mid-December it was still nearly $65,000 short of its $440,000 annual campaign goal, it seemed unlikely that all charitable organizations that applied for UW funding would receive it. Yet, support for the United Way and last-minute donations from the community helped it reach a total $425,346 (96.5 percent) of its goal by year’s end.

“We are very pleased with this year’s campaign,” said Chenango United Way Director Elizabeth Monaco. More money was raised in this year’s campaign than in 2009 or 2010, she added. “The community has been very generous; some people even made double donations.”
