TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A local non-profit is celebrating more than seven decades of serving our area.
The United Way of the Big Bend is celebrating it's 75th year by kicking off a fundraising campaign earlier today.
During a luncheon, it was announced that together, all of the board members committed about $100,000.
They hope by starting off the campaign this well, they'll see even more donations moving forward.
All the money donated stays within the Big Bend area, helping local families and other non-profits.
"It's a multi-county region," said Skip Foster, the incoming board chair at the United Way of the Big Bend. "You can designate your donation to go to a specific agency, but what most people do is send it to the United Way to determine the best way to allocate it."
The theme for this year's campaign: "the legacy that endures."
