Detroit, Milwaukee Among Cities Surpassing Goal in Drive for Local and Foreign Relief

Detroit and Milwaukee are among the larger Jewish communities which have already surpassed their goals in the current drive for local and overseas needs, it was reported today by the United Jewish Appeal.

Detroit raised more than $3,200,000, which exceeded its campaign goal of $2,000,000 by $1,200,000. Milwaukee has also surpassed its goal by raising more than the $1,000,000 aimed for, which was three times the amount raised last year.

Kansas City has gone above its $825,000 goal and funds are still coming in. Cincinnati has raised $783,000, which is $82,000 more than it aimed at. Many other cities throughout the country are doing proportionately as well, the UJA said.
