With 12 days to go in this United Way fund-raising campaign, the tally sits at about $1,287,000, or 78 percent, of the goal of $1.65 million.

Your tax-deductible contribution can go to help those needing shelter, food or even help those working to get the equivalent of a high school diploma.

Catholic Charities is one of 17 agencies that operate 29 programs in the community that are funded by your donations to the United Way.

Last year, the United Way raised $1.508 million, exceeding its goal of $1.46 million

If you want to make a tax-deductible contribution or learn more about the United Way, call 332-0941.
