Funding Shortfall @ Massac's United Way

Paducah, KY – In the wake of reduced funding at Massac County's United Way, nearly a dozen nonprofit service agencies will be affected. The $5,000 shortfall comes as its campaign failed to reach its goal, despite a generous boost from staff at Harrah's Metropolis Casino and Hotel. Harrah's raised almost $13,000. The donation was the result of Harrah's-hosted fundraisers, employee payroll deductions, and outright gifts from casino management. The Paducah Sun reports this is the second year in a row the agency has not met its funding goal of $65,000.
