United Way of the Quad-Cities Area will announce Wednesday whether it made it to its $8.85 million goal for the 2013 workplace fundraising campaign.

The announcement will be at 1:45 p.m. at Hand-in-Hand, 3860 Middle Road, Bettendorf.

The workplace campaign helps to further United Way's partner agencies' common goals of making sure Quad-City families have the resources they need to be financially stable, that every student graduates and that the community is healthy.

Last year's contributions of about $8.5 million had an impact of more than $20 million on the community, organizers say.

United Way kicked off its campaign in August with the annual Day of Caring, when volunteers completed service projects throughout the Illinois and Iowa Quad-Cities.

Hand-in-Hand is a United Way agency. The organization's programs provide a growing number of services for both special- and typical-needs children from 6 weeks to 21 years old. It has an accessible playground and is tailored to the needs of children with disabilities. Professional directors and volunteers offer years of experience serving individuals with special needs.
