UNITED WAY OF LAMAR COUNTY CAMPAIGN GOAL OF $500,000
Last fall the United Way of Lamar County Campaign had a goal to raise $500,000 to give to 24 non-profit programs in Lamar County. Thanks to the work of our Campaign Cabinet volunteers we exceeded that goal and raised over $635,000 in pledges. We want to thank all of the individuals, businesses and industry employees who give so generously to our campaign each year!
The dollars raised in the Campaign are used to fund 24 local nonprofit partner agencies that focus on supporting vital programs in the areas of education, income, health, and basic support services. The 2020 Grant recipients include: American Red Cross, ATCOG – Paris Metro, Boys and Girls Club, Boy Scouts, CASA, C.E.R.T., Children's Center for ECI, the TX Dream Center, ETCADA, Paris/Lamar County Habitat for Humanity, Imagination Library, LC Child Welfare Board, LC Coalition of Education, Business & Industry, Downtown Food Pantry, LC Human Resource Council "Meals on Wheels", LC Literacy Council, New Hope Center, RRV Down Syndrome Society, RSVP, SAFE-T, The King’s Daughters, and The Salvation Army.
