United Way Kicks Off Fundraising Campaign

Truman’s United Way Campaign began Sept. 14 in an effort to strengthen the Kirksville community and reach this year’s goal of $56,000.

The funds raised during the campaign will stay in the local area. The local United Way has among the lowest overhead in the nation, which means those who contribute will have more of their contribution dollars reaching the people that need it the most.
