Fayette Campaign Still Going Strong
Some might look at this sign and smile because the Common Fund is more than half way to its goal.
However, campaign volunteers wanted to be at the $20,000 mark by now, but they're not worried.
"If we had $20,000 you know we'd say woohoo, and we'd say we were done. But you know there's still a way we can go back and see who hasn't gotten the packets in, and we'd still follow up and make sure the money gets in," said Kathyrne Harper, Common Fund Chair.
But others say without these funds they might not survive.
Barbara Davis of the Senior Board Center said, "Probably without their support and the support that the city gives us we wouldn't be able to function."
So far the Commons Campaign has raised a little over $13,000, which was their goal last year.
Organizations like the Senior Center depend on the fundraiser, and if the goal this year is not met, they might have to look for money elsewhere.
This means more fundraising affairs here at the center, or the center will have to go public and ask for donations.
The Senior Center is the meals on wheels program, this is the only fundraiser they do for meals on wheels.
Campaign volunteers did extend the fundraising campaign to November 14.
You can drop off donations for the common fund to Kathryne Harper at the Fayette Courthouse.
