Fund-raising for the new St. Edward Community Center showed a small gain of $2,600 during the past week.
The total stood at $139,600 for funds given or pledged to this project as of June 30, but progress is being made toward meeting the $300,000 goal to complete funding for the new center.
This leaves $160,400 to be raised to complete the project.
