ARDMORE, OK -- The United Way of South Central Oklahoma hosted their annual campaign kick-off Thursday at the Ardmore Convention Center.
The United Way distributes its proceeds to 33 area agencies that provide various social humanitarian and emergency needs.
Chairwoman Sara Jones said the kick-off gets everyone excited for the year ahead. Jones said, "Just sort of an opportunity to cheer everyone on and say, you know, we've got a big job ahead of us and we need everyone's support."
Jones says the agency's goal for this year is $850,000 dollars. Which they are hoping to raise by November.
