Nacogdoches County United Way is deciding how much funding 23 non-profit agencies should receive.
The allocations committee heard from agency representatives justifying their share of the $500,000 United Way hopes to collect in donations.
It's the same goal set for last year. But hopefully a hurricane like Rita won't get in the way. United Way Director Diedra Richardson said, "We missed our goal by $70,000 for the past year, but we're setting it the same for 2007. We're not backing down."
