FIRST UNITED FUND CAMPAIGN IN FREEPORT
RAISES OVER $37,500 QUOTA WAS $35, 000
The first United Fund of Freeport Campaign held duringOctober
has raised over $37, 500 to date. This announcement was made recently
by Fund President Dr. Milton B. Waldman.
Final figures on the campaign will not be available for several
weeks, but the original goal has already been exceeded by over $2, 500.
In speaking of the outstanding success of the first campaign for 7 partic-ipating
agencies, Dr. Waldman described it as one of the most success-ful
community endeavor s in which Freeport has participated. He further
pointed out that the citizens of Freeport can be proud of their record of
achievement in supporting this community-wide effort.
In analyzing the results of the drive United Fund Officials attrib-uted
its success to several factors. "Freeport has accepted the prin-ciple
of United Giving as a means for community support of health, wel-fare,
service and philanthropic groups. In addition, the enthusiasmand
support of hundreds of volunteer workers rolled up a magnificent result
in the village house-to-house canvass.
Proceeds of the campaign will be distributed to participating
groups early in 1957. Organizations to share in this distribution are:
American Red Cross, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cerebral Palsy, Mental
Health Association, Salvation Army, and U.S.O. It was also pointed
out by Russell E. Hotaling, Campaign Manager, that none of these 7
agencies will conduct any house to house appeals for funds during 1957.
Already both the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts have announced plans
for their 1957 Fund campaigns elsewhere, but in both cases it should
be noted that the village of Freeport will not be included, because of the
participation of both of these agencies in the United Fund Campaign for
1956, which has provided them with this village's share of their 1957
