FAIRMONT — Thanks to efforts throughout the community, the United Way of Marion County has reached and exceeded its goal of raising $455,000.

During the South Fairmont Rotary meeting Wednesday, Tiffany Samuels, director of the United Way, announced the organization had raised $458,000 during this year’s campaign.

“I am absolutely speechless and can’t come up with the words to thank Marion County for helping those in need,” Samuels said.

Samuels said the number should continue to increase because pledges are still coming in to the United Way office. This year’s goal was the largest goal ever for the United Way of Marion County.
