Organizers for Operation REACH said they are far from making their fundraising goal, but they are still optimistic it can be achieved with three weeks to go.
“The community of Roane County has always come through for us,” REACH president Jane Ollis said. “This year, they might be just a little bit slow or not thinking REACH is here on us right now. Sometimes it creeps up on us faster than we think.”
REACH, an acronym for Roane Enriches Another Child’s Holiday, is in its 36th year.
