United Way to launch 2013 funding campaign

UNDATED – The Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way is holding their 2013 funding campaign launch Wednesday and all are invited.

Keri Albright is President and CEO.  “We have goals for the community we hope to achieve, such as increasing the number of kids in early childhood education programs and decreasing the number of people arrested for drug and alcohol abuse.  We do hope to raise as much money or more than we did last year, but we are really focused on the outcomes of our community partners’ work and our own work and how we can change the community, as opposed to a financial goal.”

The kickoff will be Wednesday at the Sunbury Social Club pavilion.  “It is a nautical theme as we launch the campaign,” says Albright.  “Nautical attire is encouraged and there will be a cash bar, appetizers and pontoon boat rides.  It will be a fun afternoon.”

The event is from 4:00p.m.-6:00p.m. and is $20.  If you are interested in attending, contact the Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way office at 570-988-0993. (Sara Bartlett)
