United Way gives fourth fall report

CLINTON — United Way of Clinton County, Iowa held its fourth Fall 2013 Campaign Report Meeting on Dec. 12 at Camanche Middle School.

The Camanche Division exceeded its goal, reporting at 101.7 percent of overall goal.

Steve Cahoy, Fall 2013 Pacesetter Division Co-Chairman, shared his thoughts in regards to the campaign.

“During our fourth campaign report meeting, the generosity of individuals and businesses in our home communities was readily apparent,” he said. “At an overall campaign status of 88 percent of goal, we are on target and close to reaching our hoped-for fiscal year 2014 funding. To those who have played a role in achieving the results to date, I express heart-felt thanks. I do this on behalf of the many, many neighbors who have been touched, all with personal stories of bettered lives due to your efforts and monetary support.”

In addition, Cahoy spoke of the importance of achieving the overall campaign goal and how it affects our area community and individuals in need. Ninety-nine percent of contributions stay local.

“However, ‘close’ still means there are honest needs which may not be fulfilled if our total goal is not achieved. The impact of the remaining 12 percent cannot be overstated. Underfunding has a very personal feel to individuals who cannot be helped in crises or in less fortunate situations than many of us enjoy,” said Cahoy. “As we become more deeply immersed into the holiday season, our attentions often turn increasingly to the preparations and anticipations surrounding it. This can be a challenging time to strongly finish out our campaign. I know there are hearts out there who know the blessing not only in receiving support and encouragement, but even more so, in providing it. If you have been considering how you can make a positive impact on your community and the individuals within it, know that a contribution to United Way would be very well used and greatly appreciated.”
