A non-profit focused on the well-being of the southern tier has raised 3/4 of its campaign goal.

The United Way of Broome County recently received an $85,000 grant from the Decker Foundation.

This will be added to the organization's Annual Community Campaign which funds local programs addressing health, education and financial stability.

100 percent of the donations go back into the community projects.

The organization's interim executive director says she's grateful for the support from both donors and volunteers.

"We don't have to reinvent the wheel,” said United Way of Broome County Interim Executive Director LoriAnne Welch. “It's funny when we look back over the documents and the archives, we see the dedication year over year of so many individuals in our community that have made this work."

The organization has to raise about $460,000 to reach its $2 million goal.
