The United Way of Grays Harbor received a very generous gift at their monthly Executive Committee meeting on Thursday, March 26, when Jim Daily, from the Grays Harbor Community Foundation, presented the United Way of Grays Harbor with a check for $76,020.29 as a one time donation from an anonymous donor.
Carl Jonsson 2008-2009 Campaign Chair stated "This is a wonderful donation to our campaign and our community. I was floored to hear about the gift from the anonymous donor. This is a prefect example of how great our community is and how they step up in the times of needs for members of our community."
This, along with other donations, brings the 2008-2009 Campaign total to $455,870.98, which is 86.8% of the overall goal of $525,000. "Although we are extremely appreciative of this donation, we cannot stress enough that we need everyone's help to make this goal a reality. Big or small, every bit counts and makes a difference. We challenge the community to help us with our last months' push to meet our goal," urged Lynsi Polanco, Executive Director of the United Way of Grays Harbor.
