Angelina County United Way

The 60th Annual United Way fundraiser is winding down for Angelina County. This year has been quite a success. They are at 90 percent of their total $650,000 goal.

In Diboll, they did their part this week to fulfill their division quota. They've raised more than they hoped. Their total went from 55 percent last week to a 105 percent this week.  Diboll has raised a total of $105,000, thus far. Several other divisions have also reached their goals, including Press (103%), Physicians (100%), Insurance (116%), Huntington (128%), Lufkin State School (108%), Hudson (106%), Realtors (114%), Automobiles (106%), and Central/Pollok (130%).  Several other divisions are very close and are expected to reach the top by next Friday.

The campaign continues through next week. All of the money raised in Angelina County stays in Angelina County to help fund 23 local non-profit agencies.

Campaign Chairman Bob Brown says he has great confidence in the people of Angelina County and he's optimistic the Angelina County United Way will reach its goal.
