Sonora, CA — The United Way of Tuolumne and Calaveras County is hoping to raise $118,000 this year for local organizations.
Area Director Sandy Romena says they are currently in the midst of their campaign season which will continue through this month. Last year the group was able to raise $107,000.
A local advisory board decides which organizations receive the funding. In the past, money has gone to groups such as the local boy and girl scouts, food banks and meals on wheels.
Romena notes that all of the money raised will stay in Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties. Those interested in donating to the group can contact Romena at 209-532-1607.
