Dubuque United Way announces new campaign goal

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- The Dubuque United Way has upped its campaign goal again this year. They're looking to raise $1.9 million.

United Way supports more than one dozen agencies in the tri-states, including the Girl and Boy sSouts, American Red Cross, Salvation Army and Catholic Charities.

Campaign leadership says even with a tough economy, they are optimistic about raising more money than ever.

"Even when they know it's tough times, it seems they give a little bit more, and that's what it's going to take. A little bit more enthusiasm, a little bit more energy, and of course, a little bit more dollars," Carol Townsend said.
