BOONE, Iowa—United Way of Boone County kicked off their annual fundraising effort this week. Shari Gillespie, President of the United Way of Boone County says they’ve kept their goal the same for the 2011 campaign, $110,000. Gillespie says last year they went over the goal by about $5,000. She says it did take a little longer because of the economy, but Boone County residents really stepped up again. United Way of Boone County distributes financial resources to 22-agencies serving Boone County clients.
