United Way Campaign Still Seeks Donations

The 1999 Loudoun United Way Campaign is on track to raise more than $390,000, and donations are still sought to meet grant applications totaling more than $1 million.

Donations that are not directed to a specific agency will be distributed to local nonprofit agencies after 25 community volunteers review the 45 grant applications. Funding decisions will be made by June 5, according to United Way Director Gray Wells.

United Way has recognized Nancy Fixx, coordinator of the Town of Leesburg campaign, for her 18 years of service. The town's 1999 contribution rose 27 percent over the previous year's.
