JAMESTOWN – The 2013 United Way Campaign has raised $1,039,796 so far this year, or 79 percent of the $1,315,000 goal. With the clock ticking on this year’s campaign, officials said they will need participation from everyone, and they will need it soon.
Co-Chair Deke Kathman said while there are a few larger companies who haven’t reported back yet, there are many smaller ones that collectively account for a significant portion of the overall total.
