Rowan County United Way exceeds goal
By Shavonne Potts
SALISBURY — The Rowan County United Way exceeded its goal for this year’s campaign raising more than its $1.6 million.
At Wednesday night’s grande finale, it was announced the community contributed $1,619,081.08 to the campaign.
There are still campaigns that haven’t been completed. One of those companies who still are raising money is Food Lion.
Food Lion recently made a $100,000 corporate donation and has said once its employees finish its campaign, the company will match the employee contributions.
By year-end, the totals on the outstanding money toward the campaign should be available, said Campaign Chairman Steve Fisher.
The finalists for the car giveaway were eliminated until the winner remained. The winner of the car was Edwin Martinez. Martinez, of Landis, will choose a car from Cloninger Ford/Toyota.
