Charlotte United Way raises $43.5 million

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – United Way of Central Carolinas set a new campaign record, raising over $43.5 during its 75th anniversary drive this fall.

The total, up 6.2 percent over last year, fell short of the 2006 goal of $44 million, but was the largest year-over-year increase since 2000, United Way says.

The funds will be directed to health and human services agencies in Anson, Cabarrus, Mecklenburg and Union counties and the Mooresville-Lake Norman area.

The charity thanked campaign chair Michael Baker of Deloitte & Touche and board chair Ned Curran of the Bissell Companies and campaign chair Michael Baker of Deloitte & Touche at a campaign finale celebration Nov. 16.
