United Way nearing its goal


Tribune photo by Aaron Piper/ Elyse McGill works with Ryan Collins, 8, of Seymour to construct a paper and foam snowman recently at Seymour-Jackson Elementary School during an after school session of Kids Klub. Kids' Klub is run by Child Care Network, which receives funding from Jackson County United Way.

Now that Christmas is over, Jackson County United Way officials are hoping residents will consider giving back a little by making a donation to this year’s fundraising campaign.

Tonja Couch, executive director, reported Thursday that recent donations have pushed the total amount collected and pledged to $667,181, or 73 percent of the $910,000 goal.

“That’s a large increase from our last report two weeks ago,” Couch said. “We jumped 14 percent and still have some industrial campaigns wrapping up.”

There are only a few days left in the year, but Couch remains optimistic.
