United Way of Central Kentucky has broken the $1 million campaign mark for the second time in its history.
Executive Director Christopher Wilborn said the agency has received more than $1 million in donations as part of its 2011 campaign, which continues through February.
The number puts United Way in reach of its goal of $1,025,000. The organization collected slightly more than $1 million in 2007.
“What we have really seen is an (outpouring of support) from the community that, when asked, has risen to the challenge,” he said.
