Lufkin United Way reaches its donation goal


The United Way was able to surpass its goal in this year's donation drive, Friday.

The group's goal was set at $530,000 and the total raised at 9 A.M. Friday, the total was more then $701,000 dollars.  The group was satisfied with the results but did admit they weren't sure they would make the goal today.

"It was such a relief this morning to know that we made the goal, and I can stop worrying about it and now… the campaign doesn't end till next week so hopefully we can bring in a little more,," said Brian Cyr, United Way Chairman.

Friday's  results were made possible by a lot of local support including a very generous donation by Lufkin Industries.  The company donated over $343,000 to the cause. And a reminder, you can still donate in the drive until the end of next week.
