United Way celebrates 90-years of helping the community

Posted: Updated:

The United Way of Southwestern Indiana is celebrating 90-years of helping the community.

At the annual breakfast, United Way officials gave an update on how the fund raising campaign is going.

President Carol Braden-Clarke says they are in the final stages of the campaign with a projected total of $4.2-million.

That money will help support more than 60 programs and more than 30 partner agencies.

Thursday's gathering also recognized top volunteers and companies.

"We have volunteers that help us with all the programs we have and without them we couldn't do the work we do," says Braden-Clarke.

Donations to the United Way also help fund the 211 call center and volunteer action center
