Monadnock United Way at 83% of Campaign Goal with $1,755,960
The final Report Meeting of this year’s Monadnock United Way campaign was held on Wednesday, January 21, 2015. John Round welcomed Division Chairs, Team Captains, Loaned Employees, MUW Board members, volunteers and guests who have worked hard over the past four months.
After the status reports for each of the divisions, Round announced the campaign is now at $1,755,960, or 83% of the goal. That’s an increase of $81,289 over what was reported two weeks ago. But it also means $350,274 still needs to be raised in order to reach the goal. However, Round stressed, “This campaign is not about reaching the goal, it’s about helping the people who receive the much needed services from our partner agencies.”
Congratulations to the Construction Division (Keith Thibault, chair) and Towns I (Sharon Greatbatch, chair) for exceeding their Division goals. And by the time you read this, the Special Division (Beth Truman, chair) will most likely have reached its goal (currently at 99%)!
Round announced that over the next month or two, a group of 20 special “Ambassadors” will be focused on reaching out to businesses and individuals, hoping to gain and build relationships with 100 new donors. Building relationships, and generating awareness and understanding of Monadnock United Way, will help strengthen support for the future.
And finally, Round thanked everyone who volunteered to help this year, stating that there were about 400 volunteers who were involved with the WONDER… campaign. These volunteers worked approximately 6,300 hours, providing a value of over $144,000! Monadnock United Way is grateful for the work done by all of these dedicated volunteers.
