The United Way Perth-Huron has broken the one-million dollar mark as part of its annual fundraising goal.
The organization is on pace to raise more money than any previous campaign after setting out an ambitious goal of $1.5 million in 2017.
Recently the LCBO and the Huron-Perth Healthcare Alliance made significant contributions of more than $60,000 each.
A solid chunk of fundraising for the United Way is done through workplace campaigns.
Executive Director of the local United Way says that money is especially important this year given how many programs, projects, community groups and organizations could benefit from it.
The next fundraiser is set at Stratford’s Rotary Complex this upcoming Saturday with an ABBA and Bee Gees tribute show.
