United Way sets $50,000 drive goal
Eighteen entities will benefit from the 2010 drive, which gets under way in October.
The $50,000 goal is the same as last year’s in a scaled-down post-Alcoa era and Puente says South Milam UW expects to meet that goal.
“We’re at $44,000 right now,” he said. “We’ve met requests for the first two quarters and we’re South Milam County United Way, PO Box 189, Rockdale, 76567.
