United Community Fund Campaign Begins
Back in 1954, the United Community Fund, got off the ground with $1000 in hand, $3000 in loans, and a small army of volunteers who made approximately 12,000 house to house calls in that first year raising $100,000. Based on that standard and factoring in the consumer price index, between then and now, the fund should raise $600,000. But the yearly contributions have stubbornly hovered between $300,000 and $400,000 in spite of concentrated efforts on the part of dedicated volunteers to boost the numbers.
