United Way needs your help to reach donation goal

Posted: Updated:

United Way officials say they've raised 81% of their goal, but still need your help.

Donations are up four percent from last year and the organization is on track to raise more than four million dollars, but that money goes fast. It goes to help dozens of non-profit agencies, like the Ark Crisis Nursery. They rely on that money to help others.

"We need everyone to participate," said St. Mary's Medical Center CEO Tim Flesch. "We're still waiting for some companies to report. We believe we cam make this goal. We believe it's important to make this goal. The vulnerable in this among our community remain with us."

If you'd like to help, you can mail donations to the United Way at PO Box 18, Evansville, 47701, visit them in person on 4th Street downtown, or make donations online.
