The organization, which helps benefit over 35-thousand community members in Christian County, is looking to reach their fundraising goal of 140-thousand dollars for the 8-week campaign.

In addition to an informational DVD and food provided by Taylorville Memorial Hospital, those attending Thursday night’s kick off dinner were able to listen to two speakers from United Way-supported agencies, the Loving Arms Crisis Pregnancy Center and the Christian County Prevention Coalition.
