With a month to go, the annual United Way of Chatham-Kent fundraising drive is $400,000 short of its goal.
As of last Friday, the campaign topped the $1.5-million mark. But the goal is $1.9 million, and the campaign has until Jan. 23 to clear that final 20% hurdle.
United Way officials are asking for the community’s help, but project they will fall short.
Last year, the campaign raised $1.85 million.
