United Way Sets Campaign Goal

The United Way of Angelina County's 60th annual fundraising goal is $650,000. That's a 5,000 increase from last year's target.

This week, nearly two dozen non-profit organizations met with the United Way's budget committee to explain their agency's efforts and ask for an increase in funding.

Twenty-three Angelina County groups made the cut for next year's fundraising campaign. The volunteers will start collecting money for these groups in the fall.
