SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The United Way of the Ozarks is kicking off their campaign, 80’s style this year.
Wednesday morning, instead of the standard red ribbon, a VHS Tape ribbon was cut at Mediacom Ice Park, officially marking the start of this blast from the past themed event.
Last year, the United Way raised $2.7 million during its campaign.
This year, the goal has increased to $3 million.
Workplace campaigns in the area will donate through payroll deductions during September and October.
You can always text “OZARKS” to 41444 to donate with your credit card as well.
