(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The United Way's annual fundraising campaign fell short of its goal this year.

The non-profit raised $2.9 million, officials announced Thursday -- just short of its $3 million goal.


"While we reported what the community pledged to the Campaign last night, we are hopeful that more dollars will come as a result of some employee campaigns that are still wrapping up and individual donors who have not yet had an opportunity to mail in their pledges," said Kylee Strough, President of United Way of Greater St. Joseph.

"Our community continues to be generous, and it's pretty amazing how much good we can do when we pool our resources as the United Way Campaign allows us to do," said campaign chair Ron Auxier.

The United Way supports 17 local partner agencies.

The campaign kicked off in September.
