Christa Battin, Chair of the Titusville Area United Way's Uniquely United Campaign announced today that the campaign has reached 70% of its annual goal with $113,000 in donations and pledges in hand to date. Helping the campaign to meet the milestone is the staff of the YWCA who achieved 100% in employee participation in the campaign. The YWCA's payroll pledges are matched at a rate of .50 for each dollar through the John Nesbit Rees and Sarah Henne Rees Charitable Trust, which helps the campaign inch closer to its goal.
"I congratulate the staff of the YWCA for so generously supporting the Uniquely United Campaign. It is clear that each of them understands the importance of supporting the community through the United Way." stated Battin.
