DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) –United Way of Stephens County’s fundraising goal has nearly been met, but they hope to exceed their goal in a final push.

United Way of Stephens County set their fundraising goal at $350,000, and they’ve raised 88 percent, or just over $300,000, already.

“We’re really pleased,” Doug Volinski, Chief Financial Officer at Duncan Regional Hospital and president of the United Way Board of Directors, said. “Stephens County is living up to its reputation of being a generous community and we’re grateful for the support.”

Nearly 1,200 donors have helped contribute to the campaign, and those donors include individuals, businesses and corporate participation. United Way of Stephens County says it’s all about helping the community.

“It’s all about people helping people,” Volinski said. “And we should be proud of what’s happening this year, especially considering the uncertainty of our economy because of oil and energy challenges.”

This last push for donations will determine how much financial assistance they’ll be able to provide to their 14 partner agencies. Those agencies include: Christian Family Counseling Center, Christians Concerned, Douglass Eastside Senior Citizens Center, Duncan Area Literacy Council, Duncan Community Residence, Duncan Senior Citizens Center, First Christian Church Daycare and Learning Center, Gabriel’s House, Girl Scouts of Southwest Oklahoma, Heartline 211, Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma Inc., Marlow Samaritans, Women’s Haven and Youth Services for Stephens County.
