United Way Totals Via
The Mountain Top
by: Bobby McDonald
Last week, I apprised United Way Campaign Chair, Judy Tipping, that I would be out of town for the reporting meeting, this morning. Via our modern technology, we devised a way that I could get you, the readers, the news about the campaign, as fast as possible. However, I wasn't counting on the signals to be quite so quaint and having to climb to the top of the mountain to get the call through and things posted on the internet!
I got to the top of the mountain and via some "scratchy" conversation, I found out that this morning campaign workers turned-in collections of $25,087.39, and pushed the campaign over 2/3rds of its total. Total for the campaign to date is $106,862.53.
I don't know for certain, but I'll bet this is the first time in the history of the Hopkins County United Way that the totals have been received in the mountains of Arkansas, so that you could have them!
