United Way fundraising already bringing in big bucks for local non-profits


The United Way yearly fundraiser is less than half over, but they are already seeing the money come in.
The United Way's goal for this year is to raise nearly $2.3 million dollars. That money will help benefit 52 non-profit organizations in the Black Hills area.

As of this week they have raised 30 percent of their goal with nearly $880,000.

The 2-1-1 help line is one non profit that benefits from the United Way's assistance.

The help line is a referral service for people to get many kinds of assistance, whether it be childcare, government or financial assistance, and much more.

"It's critical, that's a big part of our budget, it is a good foundation, we do receive funding from various other sources," says Kasondra Brooke, Resource Development Director for the 2-1-1 Help line.
The 2-1-1 help line received more than $23,000 from the United Way last year, and more than $150,000 since it began in 2006.
