United Way Falling Short by $900,000

By Mark Scott

Buffalo, NY – With a month-and-a-half left in its fiscal year, the United Way says its Community Care campaign is falling behind last year's pace.

Agency President Arlene Kaukus delivered a campaign update Thursday. So far, she says, $13.3 million has been raised. That's about $900,000 less than the amount raised by this time last year.

Kaukus says campaign organizers hope to match the 2007 total of $15.4 million.

Kaukus says falling short would hurt the United Way's ability to pay for the services the community needs.
