CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Many local not-for-profits will be seeing a big boost in a few months.

The United Way of East Central Iowa announced its campaign has raised more than $10 million for the seventh year in a row -- exceeding the organization's goal.

"This spring we'll be allocating those dollars out," said Lois Buntz, President and CEO. "The more dollars we have, the more people that get served in the end, and there are a lot of needs right now."

The organization is hoping to raise more and is still accepting donations.
