ADA, OK -- Ada Regional United Way has kicked off their annual fundraising campaign to help local service agencies in Pontotoc County.
Executive Director, Latricia Bryant, says the organization helps fund 13 different service agencies in the area from Boys and Girls club of Ada to the American Red Cross chapter.
Bryant says this year's goal is 230 thousand dollars, and they're nearly 50% there thanks to local businesses and donors.
Their mission is very specific to providing services to the community," Bryant said. "We do ask them to do fundraising on their own, but this provides a percentage of their income so they're not having to focus on fundraising as a main mission. "
Bryant says the campaign will run until December 31st.
