Howard County United Way Surpasses 2016 Goal

Officials from the Howard County United Way say the organization surpassed its’ fundraising goal for 2016, ensuring that all member agencies will be fully funded this year.

United Way officials say they raised just over 2.1-million dollars in last fall’s fund drive, slightly exceeding the 2.1-million dollar goal.  That amount did not include the extra money that was raised following the tornadoes that swept through Howard County in late August.  That money was separate and went straight to disaster relief programs.
