United Way reaches halfway point
The United Way of Stephens County has reached the halfway point of its 2018-19 fund-raising goal.
Contributions and pledges topped the $160,000 mark last week and campaign officials are hoping for pre-Christmas and pre-New Year surges that will push funds closer to the $325,000 goal.
