Six Million Dollars
That's how much the United Way of Greater Topeka hopes to raise during its 2008 campaign drive. The announcement came Wedneday morning during its Campaign Kick-Off event at the Big Gage Shelter House, 635 SW Gage Blvd.
Volunteers lined up in white t-shirts adorned with numbers. Slowly they were pulled out of lined until the numbers on the backs displayed the organizations annual goal.
The gathering also offered the United Way an opportunity to recognize some of its most distinguished volunteers from the past year.
