MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Dying my hair pink for the day seemed a small price to pay for the payoff – 100% participation in this year's River Region United Way campaign from the nearly 100 members of our team.

WSFA is certainly not alone among businesses in our community. Everyone in many departments of the City of Montgomery contributed, including all 160 members of Montgomery's maintenance department.

All employees at Sterling Bank and Aliant Bank contributed, as well as all those at the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce, Summit Housing Partners and Aldridge, Borden and Company.

MPD deserves a huge thank you from the community as 282 of the 284 police officers contributed.

Thanks to Caddell Construction Company, among the leaders in total contributions, joining Regions, BB&T and Rheem Manufacturing.

Special thanks to ALFA, by far and away the top contributor again this year, topping $800,000.

Hundreds of businesses are still conducting their campaigns and we encourage everyone to step up to assist our entire community by participating at whatever level you can.

The campaign total is more than two million dollars shy of goal. With your help it will be reached and exceeded.
