LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Congratulations to the United Way, Chairman Matt Bumstead, all of the volunteers and everyone who donated to this year's campaign.
Despite the economic climate, this year a record $5.5 million was raised! That money will go to help many local needs. It will help teach people how to read, help give a voice to abused children, help disadvantaged children get into college, and much, much more.
Consider this; it really is no surprise that the people of the Lubbock area are still giving during times when they are making personal sacrifices. I've said it before but it is still true - that's what's great about living in Lubbock.
Next week, NewsChannel 11 will host another year of the great community-wide food drive. And once again, you'll see this community come together and meet the need because that's what we do.
So thank you for supporting the great causes of United Way with record giving this year, and thank you in advance for helping feed hungry people in this year's U-Can Share Food Drive.
