AMARILLO -- The United Way of Amarillo and Canyon Youth Cabinet is giving out thousands of dollars to much needed groups in our area.
And tonight, they decided where that money will go.
They held a banquet over at Amarillo National Bank to announce recipients of the awards.
Each member of the United Way got the chance to tour non-profits and decide where the money they raised will go.
Organizers say it gives each member of the team a sense of ownership and pride knowing they get to decide where the grants will go.
