Lubbock Area United Way announces 2012 Campaign Goal

From Lubbock Area United Way:

Today in front of a capacity audience at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center, 2012 Campaign Chair David Alderson announced a Campaign Goal of $5,522,536.

"I have been touched by the success stories of many people living in the Lubbock area and encouraged by the heroic work that is done every day by the staff at United Way's community partner agencies" said Alderson.

He believes that things are looking up in Lubbock and that the community is ready to raise the most money ever. The money raised is invested in the community through 23 Community Partners who provide services to individuals and families in Lubbock and the surrounding area.

Along with the goal announcement, the JumpStart Division Chair, John Baker, announced the first campaign results. Eight area organizations participated in the JumpStart program. These organizations run their employee campaigns and finish prior to the official Campaign Kick-Off.

  • Rick's Tire Warehouse $2,000
  • Happy State Bank $15,000
  • Wells Fargo Texas Customer Care Center $24,171
  • Betenbough Homes $33,140
  • Atmos Energy $40,877
  • Citibus $50,000
  • United Supermarkets $244,175
  • Covenant Health System $620,000

Their combined total comes in at $1,029,363, which is 102.8% of the JumpStart Division goal. This also represents 18.6% of the overall Campaign Goal.

A mid-campaign report meeting will take place in the Civic Center Banquet Hall on October 11th. The campaign will wrap up with the victory report meeting on November 27th. There is no charge to attend either event and seating can be reserved by contacting the United Way office at 806.747.2711.
