The United Way of Greater Texarkana's Fundraiser Kickoff will be a little different this year. This year the campaign will take place virtually and will kick off on the United Way Texarkana Facebook page at 12-noon today, Thursday, September 10.

Both Texarkana city Mayors, Texas-side Mayor Bob Bruggeman and Arkansas-side Mayor Allen Brown, will be there to help get the campaign rolling this year.

The year 2020 has been difficult for us all, and has greatly affected our local charities. Mark told our sister station, Kicker 102.7 that our local United Way  of Greater Texarkana is down $100,000 this year in their fundraising efforts due to the pandemic. The result, of Cours, is the affects the services of 30 organizations that typically benefit greatly from the United Way.

Listen for announcements of an upcoming Golf Tournament, Fish Fry and Rummage Sale.

Also, feel free to make donation directly to United Way Texarkana via their website. In fact, they even have an incentive for you do just that... TVs! Thanks to Target, the United Way has several 55" 4K TV's to give away to those making pledges online. You can do that at TexarkanaUnitedWay.org.

Get ready, United Way needs your help, so they can help so many other local organizations right here in the Ark-La-Tex.
