United Way needs help to meet 2012 goal


With "black Friday" in the rear view mirror, one KOTA Territory organization is asking for your gift of a donation.

The United Way of the Black Hills has less than four weeks to see if it can reach its annual goal of $2,295,000.

Youth groups such as Girls Inc. and The Club For Boys are especially needy for the donations because of the variety of services that they provide.

Currently 75 percent of the annual goal has been raised but this campaign is way behind last years at this point.

"48 percent of the donations that we get are directed to kids programs. Anything to do with youth 48 percent of the United Way dollar here locally goes to kids. Compared to last year, we're about $150,000 away from where we were at this point," said Renee Parker, Executive Director of the United Way of the Black Hills.

Parker also said that the Northern Hills region consisting of Belle Fourche, Deadwood, Lead, and Spearfish is in most dire shape with $68,000 needed to be raised to meet its goal.
