Greater Douglas United Way on the Brink of History
(Roseburg, OR) — What has already been a record year for giving to Greater Douglas United Way can become one for the history books with a strong finish to the annual giving campaign, which ends March 31.
United Way Executive Director Bryan Trenkle says the organization has already collected more than $1 million in donations and now is within reach of exceeding it’s $1.175 million campaign goal.
“Once again, this community has proven it gives beyond all expectations.” Trenkle said. “Greater Douglas United Way has been serving Douglas County for 62 years. This is the first time we have ever exceeded $1 million for three straight years. With another $100,000, we will reach another historic first: exceeding our campaign goal for the fifth year in a row.”
Greater Douglas United Way delivers financial support and other resources to 28 member agencies in Douglas County, and another 200 non-profits identified by donors through payroll deduction.
“This kind of success requires thousands of people to contribute. That’s why we say it’s a team effort to reach our campaign goal year after year,” said Trenkle. “We are blessed to live in a place that recognizes the purpose of the United Way and trusts us to make the biggest impact possible.”
Trenkle and the Greater Douglas United Way staff can take donations over the phone, at their office at Jackson and Cass streets in Roseburg, or online at gduway.org.
Donors can establish recurring monthly gifts, or one-time donations.
“Every dollar helps,” according to Trenkle. “History is within reach.”
