The United Way of Greater St. Louis has met its goal of bringing in 72-million dollars as part of its 2012 fundraising campaign.  Carrie Zukoski with the United Way of Greater St. Louis says the goal is a million dollars more than last year, and they surpassed that by about $20,000.

Zukoski comments

The next order of business will be to divide the funding to the 170 or so United Way-funded agencies.  The Southwestern Illinois Division serves social service agencies and organizations throughout the River Bend and surrounding counties.
