— The United Way of the Adirondack Region is setting its sights a little higher this year for the nonprofit organization’s annual fundraising campaign.

Gerald H. Morrow, chairman of this year’s campaign, said the amount the local United Way hopes to raise this year has increased from $750,000 to $775,000. The increase, said Morrow, is based on the growing economic need in the organization’s service area, which spans Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties.
