Heart of Kentucky United Way is asking all of us to help meet the 2003 campaign goal of $990,000. To ensure that the money United Way distributes to local agencies is used for quality programs, a broad range of dedicated volunteers evaluate each agency request. While people who need and deserve a boost live in every community in America, very few regions have put together such an outstanding volunteer-based process to provide cost-effective services. Those who contribute to the annual campaign can be confident their dollars are truly making a difference.
As a United Way agency, the Salvation Army has a vital interest in the 2003 campaign. Without this valuable partnership, the Army could not bring comfort and material assistance to nearly as many hurting families in the territory it serves. Last year, the Salvation Army met the human needs of 9,012 people in Boyle, Mercer, Lincoln, Garrard and Casey counties.
