in Brazos forced
to use reserves
The Brazos County United Way’s
board of directors decided Tuesday
to dip into reserve funds after falling
short of its $500,000 pledge goal, a
United Way official said.
Bob Fleischer, executive director
of United Way, said $458,660 had
been pledged as of Tuesday but pre
dicted the figure would rise to
$475,000 or more by the year’s end.
If so, this year’s pledges would be 6
percent higher than last year’s, he
The $500,000 already has been
appropriated among United Way’s
23 member agencies and the board
voted to draw $20,000 from reserve
funds to make up for the pledge
shortfall. The pledge drive officially
ended Nov. 14, at which time only
about $415,000 had been pledged,
Fleischer blames the shortfall on
the county’s struggling economy.
“In light of the ecomomy . . . we’ve
really done quite well,” he said.
The Brazos County United Way is
made up of 23 member agencies, in
cluding the Red Cross, the Brazos
Valley Rehabilitation Center, the
Rape Crisis Center, Phoebe’s Home
(shelter for abused women), boys’

dedicated to senior citizens, the Sal
