CITY EXCEEDS UNITED WAY GOAL
(SEDALIA, MISSOURI) : The City of Sedalia, through the generosity of its employees, has exceeded its 2008 United Way goal and contributed $6,958 to service organizations throughout Sedalia and Pettis County. The 2008 contribution represents a 40% increase over City employee contributions in 2007 and shows the continuing commitment of the City’s employees to serve the community each and every day. More than half of all City employees contributed to the 2008 United Way campaign.
“Once again I am humbled by the generosity of the City of Sedalia employees,” said Tammy Lewis, Campaign Co-Chair. “In these tough economic times, their commitment to serving their community is immeasurable and is in itself, a tribute to their dedication to Sedalia.”
“It gives me great pride to recognize and thank those who gave and to those who were instrumental in helping to raise funds that were given back to help meet needs in our community at a difficult time for many,” said Mayor Bob Wasson. “I also thank those many agencies – managed by volunteer boards – for their time. The volunteer hours and expertise permit the funds to go to work immediately. Thanks again to those civic minded and generous people who work for the City of Sedalia. I am honored to be a part of this great work force.”
The City of Sedalia employs more than 200 individuals to serve the needs of the city. These employees, across all municipal operations, work as a team to ensure the safe and efficient operation of city government and services.
