Region again steps up for United Way of the Plains

Congratulations to the United Way of the Plains and all those who helped push the fall campaign across the finish line Friday. The $15.6 million raised, which was $1,613 more than the goal, was an amazing display of generosity during a period of uncertainty about the economy. Last year United Way raised $15.2 million, surpassing the goal by more than $120,000. Let there be no doubt about the willingness of south-central Kansans to act on behalf of neighbors in need.
