United Way pushing towards campaign goal

Posted by wlpo on March 23, 2016

With a little push, the United Way of the Illinois Valley could fill in the rest of the thermometer on their signs around the Illinois Valley.

The non-profit kicked off its annual fundraising drive in September trying to collect $300,000. Executive Director Julie Sloan says they’ve raised $277,000 so far. She’s hoping more corporate donations come in soon and that coaches from L-P and St. Bede can raise a good chunk o change during a bartending challenge on April 9th.

Funds raised by the United Way help out 16 non-profit agencies in the Illinois Valley. You can donate by calling or stopping by the United Way office in Peru.
