The United Way of Randolph County ended its 2012 campaign Thursday short of its $310,000 goal having raised about $282,000. Executive Director Gina Fowler said there were some unexpected obstacles to raising the money.

“We had one business that actually relocated to another city in Missouri, so we lost a pretty large employer,” Fowler said.  “We felt that that our campaign, considering that and some other things going on in our community like the economy, did very well.”
