LIVINGSTON COUNTY — Over 200 county employees participated in the United Way of Livingston 2018 campaign raising over $40,000.
A check from the County was presented to 2018 Campaign Chair, Frank Bassett at the Board of Supervisors meeting for $40,531.26. The County used a variety of fundraising events including dress-down days, raffle drawings and donated items for auction.
“It’s all of these little efforts that brought about the results we are here to share with you today,” said Frank Bassett, United Way of Livingston County Board Member and Campaign Chair, “It really is tremendous.”
A critical component of this year’s campaign was having over 20 leadership givers, people whom donated $500 or more.
The money goes directly to United Way of Livingston County and the 18 local agencies in which they support. This year’s campaign is up from last year where they raised just over $40,300.
“That’s what people in Livingston County do, they support they neighbors,” said Eric Gott, Livonia Town Supervisor. “There’s no where else in New York state that takes care of each other that we do.”
