United Way of Clallam County donations at $540,000

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Donations to the United Way of Clallam County have reached $540,000, which means the annual fundraising campaign is at 54 percent of this year’s goal of $1 million.

“All community members are encouraged to give a small amount, which helps to strengthen our community,” said Jody Moss, executive director.

“We have all seen the value and importance of a strong and critically important safety net and prevention services. One investment helps individuals and families in crisis; the other strengthens individuals and families so a crisis never occurs and in the process strengthens the entire community.”

The fundraising campaign ends March 31.

United Way invests community donations throughout the year in 23 partner agencies, delivering services in the areas of education, income and health, and in United Way’s four Community Solutions initiatives: the 211 Help Line, Access to Health Care Coalition, the Clallam County Literacy Council and Great Beginnings, which is focused on early learning.

The United Way office at 102 E. First St., Port Angeles, will be closed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and on New Year’s Day.

The office is generally open Mondays through Fridays.

Contributions also can be mailed to P.O. Box 937, Port Angeles WA 98362.
