The 2013 United Way of Richland County campaign is off to a rockin' start. It held its mid-campaign breakfast Thursday morning. Business, government, and community leaders packed the cafeteria in Eisenhower Hall at the Ohio State-Mansfield/North-Central State College campus to await the announcement of the campaign's progress. But first, the Division One Pacesetter Award was presented to Mechanics Bank for having the largest increase in giving, with the Division Two award going to J & B Acoustic for having the second largest increase. The keynote speakers were Dr. Stephen Gavazzi and Dr. Dorey Diab, the presidents of the two colleges, with both expressing their support for partnering with the United Way. The rockin' part came when the Richland County Job and Family Services dancers came out and led the crowd in singing "Dance United Way", sung to the tune of Leo Sayer's late seventies hit "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing". They also unveiled the fund-raising total so far. It's $926,935, which is $226,000 more than last year at this time. That leaves $723,000 to meet the $1,650,000 goal. The United Way of Richland County campaign concludes at the end of January.
