12 - 09 - 2011 Mifflin/Juniata United Way nearing 2011 campaign goal
The United Way of Mifflin-Juniata is closing in on the $600,000 goal, reaching 40% of the 2012 Campaign goal or $239,648. The goal may seem ambitious but it is driven by the compelling health & human service needs in Mifflin & Juniata counties. Marie Mulvihill, Executive Director explained that as outside temperatures drop, the number of calls for assistance with heating & electricity pick up. Alarmingly, more than a handful of worried callers report that they have not been successful finding assistance prior to contacting the Coalition of HOPES, a United Way partner agency. Donations can still be made to the agency at 13 East Third St. by contacting them at 248-9636.
