Donations needed at red kettles in Fannin County
Posted: 7:30 AM - BONHAM,TX---Red kettle donations across Texoma could have a big impact on the Salvation Army in Fannin County.
02-16-05 – The United Way wrapped up their campaign in Grayson County, falling more then $200,000 short of their goal of $1.4 million. The loss of jobs and the recent tsunami disaster had a negative effect on donations.
Last year, the industry in the area donated $1 million, but this year, the United Way received only 60% of that. New donations, however, were up 105% from last year.
With Tyson on its way, United Way officials think more industrial donations will come and that the food giant will replace Johnson and Johnson with a generous donation.
22 non-profit organizations depend on United Way Funds.
