United Way agencies face deep cuts

-A A +A

Local charity falls more than 50% shy of goal, forcing cuts to 26 member agencies. Now, TCUW is calling on the community it serves for help.

By April Wright, Reporter

Twin County United Way, like so many charitable organizations nationally, has fallen victim to sharply reduced contributions as the regional economy continues to sputter.
TCUW’s most recent fund-raising campaign, which ended March 31, fell more than 50 percent shy of its $215,000 goal due to losses in fundraisers, donors and the decline in jobs.
As a result, the charity has had to reduce by 25 percent — or $20,000 — its funding to 26 Twin County community agencies it supports, and dipped into reserves to keep from having to make even deeper cuts.
