United Way Campaign Just Short of its Goal

The United Way of the Ozarks' workplace campaign has raised $3,828,200.  The number was announced Thursday night during a campaign celebration.  It's the second largest campaign in the organization's history--about 1 and a half percent below last year's total.  The United Way had set a goal of $4,000,000.

2013 campaign chair Springfield police chief Paul Williams says the dollars pledged will make a tremendous impact on the issues that our communities face each day--hunger, abuse, neglect, homelessness and a lack of consistent early childhood education.

United Way of the Ozarks funds more than 40 programs and initiatives that address critical health and human service needs in a 14 county area.
