AMARILLO -- The United Way of Amarillo and Canyon kicked off this year's campaign today.
In the next few months, they're hoping to raise $5.9 million. But they say the need is even more than that.
That money goes to many organizations in our community who provide everything from after school care, meals, counseling victims of abuse, and helping people in need.
More than 100 volunteers will work to raise the funds.
The United Way raises these funds every year. And last year, they were five percent short of their $6 million goal.
