United Way Reaches Goal

Posted: Updated:

The United Way of Cascade County revealed this year's fundraising goal and let's just say they have a lot to celebrate.

The group has already announced a record total for the fifth consecutive year, totaling more than $1.1M.

Donations came down to the wire and they hit their mark of over $1.2M with just hours to spare, which was cause for a lot of excitement.

Funds from the campaign will go to a variety of local projects including Graduation Matters, which has decreased the dropout rate in Great Falls by fifty percent over the past three years.

While the new goal for next year hasn't been announced just yet, the group is hoping to raise even more to continue the work they're doing in the community.
