There are few organizations that can compare with the United Way. There are even fewer who can make such a large difference in the lives of so many people. Madison’s United Way team has been working hard this year to make the 2011 campaign a success.
At their meeting on Oct. 25, the group discussed their plans for the end of the season and their hopes for the future. Planning has begun for their Appreciation Event, which will be held on November 29. Invitations will be given out in mid November to those who donated $500 or more to the Madison United Way Campaign.
The group also reviewed the outcome of their Celebrity Waiter Event. Their final total was $1,563, a whopping 150% increase from last year’s event. The team would like to thank Madison County for their kindness and contributions to the United Way.
The campaign goal this year is $120,000. So far the team has earned just over $40,000. If you would like to donate to the United Way, you can contact any United Way member to get a donation form. All donations go to help charities and those in need.
