01 - 28 - 2013 M/J United Way approaches 80 percent of annual goal
LEWISTOWN - The United Way of Mifflin-Juniata has reached $481,465, or 80 percent, of its goal of $600,000 during the campaign that began on Sept. 19 and runs until March 15, 2013. The Juniata County Library is one of the agencies that benefits from working with the United Way. Director Matt Godissart explains how partnering with the United Way has served the Juniata County Library: "The children who attend programming at the library have benefited from extended programming, materials and new opportunities for development with the United Way's help. The children learn to foster a love for learning as well as gain social experiences through story time and other programs. Children and parents are also given opportunities to take their learning home, nurturing their interest in education in any environment."
