Representatives from United Way of Clallam County on May 9 gave a collective hand to the many helping hands that helped the organization top its goal of the 2018 fundraising campaign.
In total, 18 awards were distributed to event sponsors, outstanding volunteers and partner agencies, workplace campaigns and outgoing board members for their efforts to raise $824,328 for United Way’s campaign — exceeding the $800,000 goal — at the annual Campaign Celebration at The Cedars at Dungeness last week.
“In addition to our annual campaign fundraising, our Clallam Community Foundation invested $686,000 to the community through scholarships, grants, capital projects and more,” Christy Smith, Chief Executive Officer of United Way of Clallam County, said.
The event was sponsored by 7 Cedars Casino, Green Crow and Olympic Veterinary Clinic.
