United Way more than halfway to campaign goal

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The United Way needs you help to reach its goal. 

At it's mid-campaign luncheon, the Lubbock Area United Way announced it has raised more than $3.89 million toward it's goal. That's 65 percent of the way there.

The money raised benefits a variety of organizations around the region that help others get back on their feet.

"We're a little more, right at halfway, right at the halfway point of the campaign that started back in August and we're moving toward wrapping up everything for Thanksgiving so this is sort of a chance to update the community on where we stand and the work we have left to do," Dough Hensley, Lubbock Area United Way, said.

While the progress report looks good, there's still a long way to go. 

Lubbock Area United Way and its Community Partners work daily in the Lubbock community to assist people with needs such as affordable child care, crisis situations, character development, adult literacy, job training, and youth mentoring.
