The United Way of West Central Minnesota has set a funding goal of $920,000 for the coming year, the same target as last year.
The objective of the local United Way is to continue investing in the most important resource of west central Minnesota: its people.
Thus, the United Way focuses on two critical areas - education and health, executive director Renee Nolting told the West Central Tribune this week.
The local United Way invested more than $410,000 in 40 different local organizations as a direct result of the 2013-14 campaign. Those organizations include the Heartland Community Action Agency and West Central Industries.
The group also funds the United Way Grow Mobile program that visits local day care facilities providing preschool lessons.
Another important fact is that less than 1 percent of donations here in west central Minnesota are forwarded to the national United Way organization. The organization also spends its funding wisely by reviewing funding requests every year.
The United Way needs pledge commitments as well as volunteers. The organization has nearly 600 volunteers.
Anyone interested in contributing or volunteering can visit the United Wayโ€™s web site: liveunitedwcm.org.
