United Way Kicks Off Fundraising Campaign

The United Way fundraising campaign kicked off Tuesday in Angelina County. The group plans to raise $645,000 for next year. That money will go to dozens of charitable organizations in Angelina County.

October 6th is the first barometer painting to measure the group's progress.

Angelina County United Way funds benefit 23 non-profit agencies, including child advocate programs, Girl Scouts, and shelters that help less fortunate East Texans.

The five-week campaign will wrap up in November.
