Numbers weren’t on the menu at United Way of Etowah County’s annual meeting, but they were the topic of discussion.
Executive Director Joanne Hightower told an overflow crowd at the Pitman Theatre on Tuesday that “my job today is to tell you how we spent your money this year.”
The meeting was a chance to recognize companies and individuals for their participation in United Way’s annual campaign, which raised almost $1.4 million in 2013, and to provide insight on the impact of those dollars in the community.
