24 - CAPE GAZETYE, Friday, September 25 - October 1, 1998 United Way kicks off 1998 campaign in Sussex ceremony tion that raises funds to help sup- port programs and services of 100 member and affiliate nonprofit agencies. Cordrey, former senator for the 20th District, said that the Sussex team will raise $285,000 this year, a 10 percent increase over last year's goal. He said Stuart did not bat an eye at the amount; and assured him that the goal will be reached with no problem. Anderson announced that the statewide goal is $27 million. He said, with Stuart's experience and expertise and Cordrey's track record in getting things done in Sussex County, he has no doubt that the southern Delaware goal will be met and possibly exceed- ed.

The Sussex County executive director said, "We are very pleased with the turnout today. It demonstrates that the community is really committed to helping us reach this goal. Everyone wants to help their neighbor and that's what you're doing when you give to United Way." Stuart was joined by Sen.

Marian tells me where I'm supposed to be .and what I'm supposed to do." "For me, Marian calls them 'di- rections,' " Anderson said. "But, she was the key to the merger of Sussex County United Way and United Way of Delaware. The long and short of it is that it made so much sense to take the adminis- trative portion off of Marian. That allows her to focus on the cam- paign which she is so good at." Anderson pointed out that one in three Delawareans are touched by United Way-funded programs every year. He reminded those who gath- ered in the Higher Education Building at Delaware Tech Col- lege that money contributed in Sussex County is allocated for programs in the county" The kickoff luncheon conclud- ed with a presentation of a United Way of Delaware video that fea- tures clients and workers in agen- cies that receive United Way funding. Familiar stories from such agencies as Casa San Fran- cisco, Kent-Sussex Industries and Children & Families First are told in the video. Included in the 100 agencies that benefit from the United Way 205 Pound campaign are Boys & Girls Clubs, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, the American Red Cross in Delaware, Meals on Wheels, Lewes and Re- hoboth Inc. and Sussex County Senior Services.
