United Way cam­paign up­date

United Way of Hopewell-Prince Ge­orge seek do­na­tions to help meet goal, needs of the com­mu­nity

The Progress-Index Weekend - - LOCAL -

HOPEWELL — United Way of Hopewell-Prince Ge­orge held its fi­nal cam­paign com­mit­tee re­port meet­ing on Tues­day, Nov. 27, at Rosa’s Ital­ian Restau­rant.

Ac­cord­ing to in­for­ma­tion re­leased by the or­ga­ni­za­tion, to­tal re­ports showed only 37 per­cent of the $225,000 goal at that time. Di­vi­sions meet­ing or ex­ceed­ing their goals were: As­so­ci­ated As­phalt, Lu­mi­nant Hopewell Co­gen­er­a­tion, WestRock, Vir­ginia-Amer­i­can Water Co., Pro­fes­sion­als/Lawyers, and Pub­lic Util­i­ties.

The cam­paign will be ex­tended un­til the end of the year. It was noted that some re­ports were still un­avail­able at the time of the meet­ing and other re­ports will come later in the spring from fed­er­ated cam­paigns.

Cam­paign work­ers say the lo­cal United Way still needs the sup­port of the com­mu­nity busi­nesses, em­ploy­ees and re­tirees to meet their goal and the needs of the com­mu­nity. Any­one who has not been so­licited or not sent a do­na­tion, is asked to con­sider what one do­na­tion to United Way can do.

An emailed state­ment from the United Way of Hopewell-Prince Ge­orge reads, "these funds help pro­vide food for the hun­gry shel­ter the abused, emer­gency as­sis­tance, ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams, health ser­vices youth pro­grams and more These pro­grams de­pend on United Way sup­port for lo­cal pro­grams."
