Members of the United Way of the Wabash Valley met with courthouse employees Monday morning in order to start up the courthouse's own fundraising campaign to help the United Way reach its goal of $2 million.
According to Clay County Commissioner Charlie Brown, this is the first time the courthouse has gotten involved with the United Way.
United Way representatives met with the employees Monday and delivered to them several pamphlets, including pledge forms.
Courthouse department heads put their heads together in order to come up with a way to get word out about the campaign. They said their campaign could go on for more than one month and possibly longer.
The United Way of the Wabash Valley serves six counties in the area, including Clay, Sullivan, Parke, Vermillion and Vigo counties in Indiana and Clark County in Illinois.
