The United Way of Mahaska County's annual fundraising campaign is coming to a close but Executive Director Brianne Fitzgerald says it's not too late to give. Last year, local businesses and individuals donated Four hundred and twenty five thousand dollars and this year, Fitzgerald hopes to top that. The money will then be distributed to local non-profits to meet educational, health, or financial needs.
"Just general assistance, too, basic needs. You know, we want to put a roof over our heads. We can't pay our rent. You know, financial stability classes to make sure people can keep ahead of what the economy's bringing," says Fitzgerald.
