Finalists get chance to win car in United Way giveaway

A coworker told Alicia Moore her name had been chosen Wednesday from the Rowan County United Way’s car giveaway.
Moore works at The Salvation Army. She didn’t believe it when they told her.
“I thought they were kidding,” she said.
Her husband also confirmed that her name was chosen when he read it in the Post. Moore is still processing her lucky draw to become a finalist.
She’s not quite sure, but she at this point wants to give the car to someone. She declined to say who because she wants it to be a surprise.
“They are going through some hard times and can’t afford to fix their own car,” she said.
Moore and her coworkers donate every year to the United Way. The group fill out the pledge forms, never thinking any of them would have their names picked.
Moore was in disbelief because she said she’s never won anything.
She said she told her coworkers the day they filled out the forms, “We do this every year; none of us ever have been drawn.”
“The girls are excited for me,” she said.
Sharon Fisher, an employee at McKenzie Sports, was also picked on Wednesday.
“I’m very excited and happy,” Fisher said.
She could use a car. Her family and co-workers are all very happy for her that her name was chosen.
“It’s a really nice thing that the car dealerships do. It’s very generous,” Fisher said. “I hope I win.”
Each Wednesday during the United Way’s report meeting, two names are chosen. The minimum donation of $52 is all it takes to be entered in the car giveway.
The drawing for the finalist who will win a car is Nov. 10.
