The proclaimed Nacogdoches United Way Awareness Day was commemorated Monday with the announcement of the 2008 campaign goal. Nacogdoches United Way wants the community to raise $450,000. There are a total of 25 agencies wanting a share of the donations.
It will be difficult serving all their needs, but possible, if everyone followed the philosophy of the honorary chair, Dottie Mallory. She said, " To think of others rather than ourselves and that's something that I have always had in my mind and in my heart. Do something for somebody else first, rather than myself. "

The other is to donate online at www.unitedwaynac.com Koenig said, " We've established a secure web site and from sitting at your desk at home or your desk at your office we've given you the opportunity to give to united way. "
United Way fundraising will officially get kicked off September 1st. The campaign will conclude November 1st.
