Terrell, TX, August 2, 2017: Each year United Way of Kaufman County conducts a fall employee giving campaign with local businesses. Our 2018 goal has been set at $200,000. This is a little higher than last year and we are excited to meet this challenge. As we continue to see Kaufman County grow at such a rapid rate, we know that we will continue to have to increase our goal to meet the needs of the community.
