The United Way of North Talladega County officially surpassed its goal of $110,000 this year, bringing in $143,000 with a few envelopes still outstanding.
“We serve 19 different agencies, and this will allow us to serve them even better,” campaign chairwoman Cindy Pennington said Monday.
Pennington added that 99 percent of the money raised in north Talladega County would stay in north Talladega County, with only one percent going to cover administrative costs.
She added that she wanted to thank outgoing board chairwoman Darlene Mitchell as well as incoming chair Misty McGehee and all the other board members.
“And of course, we have to thank all of the people who contributed, from individuals to banks to industries,” Pennington said.
