Metro United Way Announces 2008 Campaign Results

Officials with Metro United Way say their 2008 fundraising campaign finished just below the goal of $29.2 million.

Agency president Joe Tolan says the campaign generated $28.5 million for Louisville area charities, but given the state of the economy, he’s pleased with the final total.

Tolan says the money will be distributed later this year.

The 2007 Metro United Way campaign raised just over $29 million.
