United Way of Greater Toledo exceeds campaign goal, raises $13.4 million

The United Way of Greater Toledo announced Thursday that it raised $13,409,320 during its 2010 campaign, surpassing its $13.3 million goal.

"This is incredible news. I am so grateful to a community that stepped up in such a generous way this year to get the job done and make life a little better for their neighbors," said the 2010 campaign chairman, Sharon Speyer, Huntington Bank's regional vice president in Toledo.

Said Bill Kitson, United Way of Greater Toledo president and chief executive officer: "This number is extra special because we were not only depending on returning gifts, but we also had to find a lot of new dollars."

A formal announcement is planned for Thursday evening.
