Tamaqua's United Way of Schuylkill County members have announced that their normal annual breakfast kickoff event has been changed to a noon luncheon kickoff event, planned for Friday Sept. 21. The event, being held at La Dolce Casa in Tamaqua, will consist of speakers and board members from Tamaqua and other parts of Schuylkill County. The United Way is a yearly financial supporter of many local organizations, such as the Tamaqua Salvation Army, Tamaqua Meals on Wheels, Tamaqua YMCA, St. Peter's & Paul Child Development and others. "Tamaqua residents and businesses have always been very generous," said Cara. "It is always a challenge to meet our yearly goal." Their 2013 goal is $102,013. "We strive hard to get everyone involved," said Bowe, who pointed out that the United Way of Tamaqua has their own board members and goals.
