United Way of Defiance County recognized volunteers who assisted with this years campaign and provided a final tally of campaign contributions at a 2003 campaign wrap-up ceremony Tuesday night at Charlies Down Under. Although final campaign results show the campaign garnered about $70,000 less than the goal of $575,000, allocations will fall short by less than that, said local United Way executive director Barb Rogers. Monies designated toward the local United Way by individuals in other United Way areas totaled nearly $30,000, which will make up some of the difference and cut the shortfall to about $40,000, she told The Crescent-News.
