Page 4/The Battalion/Friday, December 5, 1986 United Way in Brazos forced - to use reserves What’s up 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 said. 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, he said. 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’ and girls’ clubs, three organizations dedicated to senior citizens, the Sal vation Army and the Mental Health- Mental Rehabilitation Authority.
