Greater Longview United Way hits nearly half its goal for campaign
Longview — The Greater Longview United Way has raised $548,266 — or 40.5 percent — toward its 2013-14 campaign goal of $1.355 million.
Executive Director Aliceson Howell reported the amount at a campaign mixer Thursday evening at Papacita’s Mexican Restaurant. This is the first year for the mixers, which replace the campaign report breakfasts the umbrella agency held in previous years.
The campaign was a bit further along — in money raised and as a percentage of its goal — at the first campaign report of 2012. At this time this past year, the campaign had raised $570,128, or 42.5 percent of that campaign’s goal of $1.3 million.
