United Way of Front Royal Reaches 80% of 2015 Goal

PRESS RELEASE – MARCH 1, 2016

March, 2016 – The United Way of Front Royal recently called an end to the 2015 campaign for 2016, and is pleased to report that more than 80% of the goal was reached, despite the goal having been set at its highest level EVER in the county, $166,000. This ambitious goal was based on the United Way’s strategic plan drafted by its volunteer Board. This strategic plan, available from the United Way for anyone who might be interested, calls for this United Way to be raising $225,000 by the year 2020.

As of January 31, 2016, almost $135,000 was raised to fund our health and human service agencies that are members of our United Way coalition. In addition, the United Way is hopeful of funding Community Impact grants again this year, having successfully launched this new initiative last year with 4 Community Impact grants, two of which went to non-member agencies the Warren Coalition and the Humane Society of Warren County.

“I’m very proud of our community and its efforts to help our United Way raise over $130k in our campaign,” noted current United Way President Bret W. Hrbek. “Unless otherwise designated, all money raised in Warren County stays in Warren County to help our neighbors struggling to provide the basic human needs for themselves and their families.”
