SPRING LAKE, MI (WHTC) - For the third straight year, the Greater Ottawa County United Way fell short of its annual fundraising goal. Agency President Patrick Moran and campaign organizers were still upbeat that the amount of over 2.1 million dollars was up slightly from last year’s mark of 2.09 million, but it was 92 percent of the 2.3 million-dollar goal. What hurt was a drop in money raised from individual gifts and special events, but employee and corporate gifts, along with worker participation, were all up from 2013 levels, and targets for volunteer participation were reached.
