The Finney County United Way is in the middle of its annual fundraising campaign. The goal this year is $550,000, and so far receipts are at about 40 percent of that goal. That is the topic of this edition of Talk of the Town.

Executive Director Consuelo Sandoval said there still is time to schedule a presentation with a board member and partner agency to find out more about how a donation to the United Way helps in the community.

Agencies set to receive funds from United Way include Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), Big Brothers Big Sisters of Finney and Kearny Counties; Community Day Care Center Inc.; Kansas Children's Service League; Santa Fe Trail Council, Boy Scouts of America; Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland; Finney County RSVP; the Garden City Family YMCA; Miles of Smiles; Russell Child Development Center; Southeast Asian Mutual Assistance Association; United Cerebral Palsy of Kansas; United Methodist Mexican-American Ministries; Garden City Area Chapter of the American Red Cross; Catholic Social Service; Family Crisis Services Inc.; Meals on Wheels; and The Salvation Army. Sandoval said community initiatives Smart Start and the playground program at Garden City Recreation Commission also will be receiving money.

Call 620-275-1425 to talk to Sandoval to set up a presentation or to find about how to donate. Donations also may be sent to Finney County United Way, PO Box 1198, Garden City KS 67846.
