Provided by United Way

Lubbock Area United Way announced raising the largest campaign total ever to a crowd of more than 700 volunteers, donors, and agency representatives at a celebration luncheon today. Campaign Chair Brad Moran announced that $5,714,263 has been pledged to support United Way's 23 Community Partner Agencies during the coming year.

The campaign total is 101.1% of the campaign goal of $5,653,434 announced in August. In its 68 year history, Lubbock Area United Way has raised more than $152 million to support human service organizations serving Lubbock and communities in the surrounding area.

"Thanks to the generosity of our great community United Way can continue to fulfill their mission of Giving People Hope," said Moran after the announcement.

Loaned Executive Chair John Baker recognized the 53 volunteers in the Loaned Executive Division for their work in assisting more than 200 businesses with their employee campaigns. The Loaned Executives and JumpStart divisions were responsible for raising more than $3.1 million, which is 54% of the total amount raised in the campaign.

The program also included an "Outstanding New Workplace Campaign" presented to Reagor Dykes Auto Group for raising $75,274 during their first ever workplace campaign; recognition of Speakers' Bureau volunteers by Marketing Chair Vickie Bennett for their work in making presentations to more than 6,600 people during the campaign; student entertainment from the Coronado High School Show Choir "Scarlet Fever;" and guest speaker Monica Williams from Communities in Schools of the South Plains who spoke about the impact United Way has on the community and its Partner Agencies.
