United Way general campaign kicks off

September 27, 2018

NORFOLK - The Norfolk Area United Way’s general campaign is underway as volunteers gathered Wednesday night to help celebrate this year’s theme…”Join the Give Back Pack.”

Campaign co-chair Austen Hagood says the United Way plays a big role not just for the organizations, but also for the people involved.

“Pretty much everyone that is involved in a nonprofit in the Norfolk area will see some type of payout from the United Way, and there are a lot of different organizations that you would never even think that are involved with the United Way that budget that money to keep these (organizations) going” Hagood said.

The other co-chair Chase Pfluegger says the goal for this year is $445,000, which was surpassed last year.
