Football players and cheerleaders from Fort Smith Northside, Fort Smith Southside and Greenwood high schools, unveil a banner announcing the United Way of Fort Smith Area’s fundraising total since July 1 on Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022, at an annual campaign kick-off event hosted at the United Way of Fort Smith Area’s office in downtown Fort Smith. Shea Foldvary, president and CEO of United Way of Fort Smith Area, announced at the event, which included food and games, that the organization and its pacesetters had raised $764,167 so far since July 1, a dollar-for-dollar endowment that is 17% higher than what it raised by this time last year. Foldvary added that the contributions were “awesome for our community” and that United Way of Fort Smith will continue raising money until the end of year and will announce that result at another event in March 2023.
