Steady giving has United Way near campaign goal

December 17, 2010

PLYMOUTH — Slow but sure wins the race, but that doesn’t make it any easier to wait.
“It’s really kind of a strange thing this year but for whatever reason many of the campaigns are running late this year,” said Jennifer Maddox, Executive Director of United Way of Marshall County. “I’m optimistic that we’re going to reach our goal but we won’t have final numbers for awhile yet because so many businesses haven’t completed their drives.”
One local company has been “in the clubhouse” on their drive for quite awhile. Not only was it a quick one, it was a big success.
