Kahite campaign enjoys success

The Kahite campaign for United Way, which ran through October, collected more than $36,000 that will benefit 17 agencies Monroe County United Way supports.

The campaign committee's goal was participation, not dollars, with an aim to receive donations from at least half the homeowners in Kahite. The goal was exceeded by over 112% with 260 of Kahite's 460 homes participating.

An appreciation hot dog dinner for residents was held halfway through the campaign with more than 200 hot dogs served.

More than 99% of all donations received go to support Monroe County agencies. UWMC owns its building and leases 80% of that space to others. Rent collected covers all local and general and administrative costs for UWMC.
