Yesterday we collected money to help families in need of heating assistance, and your generosity brought in more than 177,000 dollars.
But wait there's more! Walmart heard about our fund-raising efforts and decided they wanted to join in on the fun, so they donated another 25,000 dollars! That brings our grand total to more than 200,000 dollars.
The United Way will be distributing that money. They say that money will help about 500 families stay warm this winter. Thanks to all.
