United Way of Gordon County approaches campaign goal

As the year ends, United Way of Gordon County is approaching its campaign goal of $650,000 with 80 percent of the goal pledged. Last year the campaign exceeded the goal and we are optimistic that maybe that will happen again this year. When the goal is met and exceeded our 18 agencies benefit from the additional funds that are available for the agencies to use for their clients. That is what United Way of Gordon County is all about, raising funds to help the community. The businesses and individuals listed below know their contributions go to help children, families, the disabled, those needing emergency assistance and dogs. Our mission is clear and we thank all those listed below for making this happen.

It is not too late to join this group. Your tax deductible contribution may be mailed to United Way of Gordon County, P.O. Box 486, Calhoun, Ga. 30703, donated on-line at www.gordoncountyunitedway.org or drop by the Calhoun Historical Depot at 109 S. King St. Calhoun, GA.
