"I'd like to look at Franklin County and challenge employers and companies out in Franklin County to get actively involved in 2012 if you didn't take the opportunity in the 2011 campaign," he said. "For those that perhaps did not get the opportunity or perhaps things were a bit tight this year ... we're going to come knocking on your door ... to help keep that spirit alive."
Stallsmith also sees a $1 million goal as a possibility at some point.
"From a personal perspective, I really believe that with the generosity of this three-county region that down the road ... there is absolutely no reason that the United Way of the Adirondack Region can't achieve a million dollar campaign goal as an organization,"he said. "Mainly due to the fact that we get that type of demand from our member agencies for that kind of support. I believe the three-county region is capable of achieving that sometime in the future."
