This year's Winona Area United Way Campaign is underway.
United Way Executive Director Beth Moe says many workplaces have started their internal campaigns and are reporting good interest among employees.
Last year the United Way board made the decision to set aside 25 percent of the funding dollars to
be used for new and innovative children's prorgamming.
Applications were received from 22 programs at 18 different organizations in the community. The requests totaled almost $120,000.
Eleven programs were funded at a total of $45,000.
