Angelina Co. United Way surpasses goal

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Angelina County United Way had a goal of $465,000 and surpassed it Friday with a total $505,000.

The money raised will be going to 20 different organizations around the county.

Martha Hernandez "We are still bringing in numbers, but we are grateful that we have reached the $465,000  and more and beyond which is not surprising because we always go beyond the call of duty," said chairperson Martha Hernandez.

The goal was reached this morning after GE Oil and Gas presented the group with a check of more than $170,000.

The total raised could still go up with last-minute donations.
