Waukesha United Way exceeds campaign goal

The United Way of Waukesha County has projected it will raise $4.35 million in its 2011 campaign. The total is six percent more than the organization raised in 2010 and exceeds the $4.3 million goal set by the campaign.
“United Way in Waukesha County is excited to be able to invest over $4 million in the community this year. Our largest companies all increased their contributions this year, as did many smaller companies and individuals. ” said Joan Shafer, 2011 Annual Campaign co-chair.
United Way in Waukesha County will celebrate the success of their annual campaign and recognize the 2011 Outstanding Campaigns at their Annual Appreciation Breakfast on February 7 at the Country Springs Hotel in Pewaukee.
“We knew that it would take serious effort to achieve the $4.3 million goal; but our partner agencies, and most importantly, members of our community are depending on United Way to be an active leader in supporting the various health and human services throughout Waukesha County,” said John Robertstad, annual campaign co-chair.
According to Paul Melnick, United Way of Waukesha county board chair, the successful campaign means a healthier community in 2012.
“We finished our local campaign strong and demonstrated that Waukesha County businesses and residents respond when called to action,” Melnick said.
