This is the Community Development Department’s and Library Division’s 8th annual fundraiser to raise funds and awareness for the United Way of the Greater Fort Hood Area and its local member agencies who provide public services to the community.
The local United Way and its 19 local human service agency members provided nearly half of a million in service contacts during the last fiscal year. Although last year’s United Way donations topped $437,595, funding requests from area agencies were more than double that amount.
City of Killeen employee contributions and fund-raising events provided more than $69,000 to United Way last year. The employees will come together once again, in the 20th year of giving, to give back to the community.
