As of Thursday, April 19, donors had contributed $2,265,074 to the Mesa United Way’s 2011-2012 Pledge Campaign, an increase of about $30,000 over the past few weeks. The goal is $2,825,000, so about $560,000 is still needed. The campaign ends on June 30.

Last fiscal year (July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011), agencies funded by the Mesa United Way provided assistance to 30,858 people. In addition, agencies that feed those in need — Meals on Wheels, United Food Bank and Paz de Cristo — served 4,631,686 meals.

Donations to the pledge campaign are not spent on the United Way’s operating expenses; those costs are covered by corporate sponsors and grants.
