The St. Joseph County United Way is in the homestretch of its 2012 campaign.
Executive Director Kelly Hostetler said the local agency has reached 80 percent of its $650,000 goal for the campaign. The campaign kicked off in August and concludes at the end of January.
Hostetler said last year’s goal of $575,000 was surpassed by about $26,000. She remains optimistic that the 2012 campaign will meet and possibly exceed its goal.
The St. Joseph County United Way benefits 42 different groups and organizations in the county.
