This year’s United Way Campaign beat its goal by more than $1,000.
The goal of $625,000 was beaten with a total amount of $626,866.
The top five contributors to the campaign were St Anthony Shawnee Hospital, Citizen Potawatomi Nation, ExxonMobil, Eaton Hydraulics, and GE Oil and Gas.
“We’re blessed to have such an engaged and active group of people who genuinely care about these agencies and Shawnee,” Drive Chairman Kevin Orsack said.
The money raised will be distributed among more than 20 partner agencies, which include Project Safe, Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts, Shawnee Rescue Mission, The Salvation Army, Faith 7, Gateway to Prevention and Recovery, as well as many others.
“I would like to thank our partner agencies for all they do,” Orsack said.
