United Way receives record-breaking contribution from Will County State’s Attorney’s office


JOLIET — The United Way received a record-breaking contribution from the Will County State’s Attorney’s office. The office staff gave over $3,270.00 to the United Way this year, which was the largest donation ever from the office. On Monday, March 1, 2005, Bridget Domberg came to the State’s Attorney’s Office and spoke to the staff about the importance and the role United Way plays to help people all over the Will County area and around the world. On March 18th the drive ended and 5 staff members gave one of their vacation days each toward the finale. We then had a drawing and picked 5 winners who received an extra vacation day. Last year the total was less than $100.00 and it is clear that this staff not only works hard to serve the people of the county everyday but they go beyond by giving their money back to the community through the United Way.
