      Hutchinson County United Way nearly reaches aggressive goal

      The Hutchinson County United Way is well on its way to reaching its goal.??

      As of Wednesday, the agency raised $641,000 of its $645,000 goal. It??s the largest goal the Borger agency has ever set.??

      Hutchinson County serves 12 agencies, including the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and Living Water Ministry, which provides food and clothing for those in need. Organizers attribute some of the agency??s success to its Executive Director.??

      Board member Theron Baker says, " I think a lot of it has to do with the dedication of our Executive director, Julie Winters.?? Since she??s come on eight years ago, nine years, she??s done a tremendous job of education about the United Way."??

      Since 2004 the agency has increased its giving 149%,
