In the wake of all the hurricane relief efforts, United Way reminds citizens that donations are needed here locally, now more than ever.
United Way gave nearly $400,000 to Red Cross and the Salvation Army for evacuees. But now, they say money is needed to help support the 24 local agencies that help Lubbock residents every-day.
"We run over 300 work places in our campaign. People make their pledges through the payroll deduction. We have started asking for pledges for 2006 starting at the beginning of the year," said United Way President Glenn Cochran.
