United Way raises $5.4 million, just shy of goal

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock Area United Way announced Friday that they have raised $5.4 million in their annual fundraising drive. This is the second largest amount ever raised in the campaign and is less than two percent below the record amount raised in 2009. Their goal for 2010 was $5.6 million.

Officials with United Way say that they faced some tough challenges along the way that they feel are still related to a sluggish economy. They see this as a tremendous victory for the community and are thankful for the volunteers who are dedicated to the cause.

More than $25 million has been raised in the past five campaigns.
