The United Way chapters of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County recently kicked off their 2013 fall fundraising campaigns.
The United Way of Greater Milwaukee has a goal to raise $52.5 million, which is $1 million over the 2012 goal.
Mary Lou Young, president and chief executive officer of United Way of Greater Milwaukee said the need in the community continues to grow and United Way needs to be able to respond.

Inc., and Brad Chapin, executive vice president, U.S. business banking, BMO Harris Bank, are serving as co-chairs of the Milwaukee campaign.
