It wasn't easy. In fact, extra time was needed. Yet despite adverse economic conditions, the 1990 campaign of the United Way of Central Maryland managed to bring in a record $31.9 million in contributions.
This is wonderful news for the 300 indispensable health and human service programs that depend on funds from the United Way. As the recession has deepened, their services have been under increasingly heavy demand.
Seventy-five percent of campaign contributions came from employees at the workplace, 20 percent from corporations and 5 percent from individuals and foundations. Maryland cares.
