Contact: Darlene Felkins or Scott Docherty
This month, the United Way of Clatsop County launched its 2013 Fundraising Campaign with very successful kick-off. The event was held at Lum’s Auto Center in Warrenton, and was an opportunity for Campaigners and supporters to become acquainted with the twelve service organizations, currently receiving funding from United Way. Presentations were made, and the community was given a snapshot view into these very important groups who serve our neighbors who have the biggest need. Please see our website for more details – www.clatsopunitedway.org
One of the biggest supporters of the United Way of Clatsop County for years has been Georgia Pacific’s Wauna Mill. Representing this generous company, Kristi Ward presented UWCC’s president, Dick Easton, with a check for $31,500. In addition, employees will have to opportunity to give through payroll deductions.
This year’s fundraising goal is $275,000, which has already reached 30%. (This number changes daily.) Through the ongoing generosity of our community, and upcoming popular events, like Iron Chef Goes Coastal and Lite Bite, we hope to reach our campaign goal and continue to provide much-needed support to the organizations that help our community.
