WILLMAR -- With the 2011-12 campaign drive half over, United Way of West Central Minnesota has raised a little more than half its fundraising goal.

In a news release this week, United Way said it had received $495,622 so far in pledges and donations. The campaign goal is to raise $923,000 from businesses, individuals and service clubs in the area.

The campaign's results so far are similar to last year, Executive Director Renee Nolting said Tuesday afternoon.
