Schuylkill United Way Surpasses 2018 Goal

On Friday morning, the Schuylkill United Way announced they surpassed their goal for 2018.

Earlier this month, we reported that the Schuylkill United Way was still in need of donations to reach their $1,100,081 goal for 2018.  As of November 6th, the organization had only raised 44% of their goal.

Fast forward two weeks until today and the organization had surpassed their goal with a total of  $1,103,000 raised.
