United Way of Washington County pushing to meet 2016 goal

Johnson City, TN (WJHL) – Thursday the United Way of Johnson City, Jonesborough, and Washington County came together to give an update on their progress for this year’s campaign goal.

The total needed for this year’s campaign is $1,725,000.00 dollars. They have raised $618,797.54 dollars. That is about 35.87 percent of the total needed.

Campaign organizers said they still have a ways to go before meeting their goal but that they are confident that they will exceed this year’s total.

“Because of the giving heart that is in this area it truly is easy to be able to ask and make those ask because people will respond”, said United Way President Lester Lattany.
