The United Way of Central Illinois has an unusual goal for this year’s fundraising campaign… one without a specific dollar amount.
Instead, the agency simply says its goal is to raise as much money as possible. Agency president John Kelker says raising the most money possible is always the goal anyway.
But he notes that even last year’s campaign fell a million dollars short of the requests for assistance that came in from local organizations. So he says the objective this year is to do everything that can be done to meet as many needs as possible in the Springfield area.
