United Way has reached 40 percent of its goal
Routt County United Way has reached 40 percent of its annual campaign goal, thanks in part to the generosity of four Strawberry Park Elementary School fourth-graders -- Maddy Schaffrick, Dani Perry, Mallory Hoots and Gaby Strnad.
In a special snack time at the school, the girls presented $43 and change to Millie Beall, executive director of Routt County United Way. Beall then presented each girl with a Routt County United Way pin and a certificate of caring.
"The girls raised the money throughout the summer by selling lemonade, Kool-Aid and cookies. It really depended on whatever we had in the house," said Kat Schaffrick, Maddy's mother. "The girls also got creative and sold time on a trampoline and on the Slip 'n' Slide."
The girls decided after the summer of fund raising that the money could best be used by the United Way.
For information about how to give to the United Way, call Beall at 879-5605.
