LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Angelina County United Way has set their annual goal amount for the 2015-2016 year.
$390,000 was the magic number carefully selected by a group of volunteers after visiting with the businesses and the non-profit agencies.
United Way says even though there have been economic difficulties in the area, they were able to come up with a plan that worked for everyone.
"The unique thing about Angelina County is we are resilient," said Campaign Chair Melissa Chumley. "Even though we've had some economic downturns in the community, we've been able to work together and collaborate with the different agencies as well as the different industries."
United Way kicks off their 2015-2016 year on October 1st.
