  • Despite revenue loss, United Way still gets aid to local agencies

    The Nelson County United Way finished its allocations process  Monday. After the Allocations Committee determined how last year’s funding was spent including how 2012’s grants would be used, food, medicine and shelter were the board’s top priorities.

    The Nelson County United Way granted $200,000 to 20 agencies despite a 13 percent drop in revenue. According to Acting Executive Director Kenny Fogle, most agencies will see a reduction from last year.
