Jeff Cothran, director of the organization, also announced that the United Way met its goal of $390,000.

One of the driving forces behind this year&8217;s success was Carver Boynton, the Selma Mall manager. She served as chairwoman of the board of directors for two years.

Under her leadership, United Way began its Day of Caring, during which corporate sponsors teamed with United Way agencies for a day of volunteerism.

It is that spirit of giving that makes United

Way and this community successful.
