United Way Barometer Keeps Rising

The Angelina County United Way is now at 24 percent of its fundraising goal. The second barometer reading of this year's campaign was held Friday.

The red paint shows the volunteers have collected more than $153,000 so far. They are well on their way to meeting their $645,000 goal.

The five-week campaign will benefit close to two dozen charitable agencies in Angelina County. The money will help 23 different groups provide East Texans with food, clothing, shelter, and other services.
