In early March, United Way of Kershaw County honored its volunteers, staff and contributors with an annual awards banquet. “We’re very proud of all our volunteers who make our campaign each year possible,” United Way Director Donny Supplee said. During the program, Supplee outlined the organization’s priorities for 2011-12, which include increasing the graduation rate to 95 percent by 2018; reducing by 50 percent the number of financially unstable working families by 2018; increasing the number of healthy adults and children by 2018 to 20 percent; and ending homelessness and hunger in the county.
