For the fourth autumn in a row, Daren Flanagan of Flanagan/Watts Funeral Home, has overseen a goal-busting United Way drive.
The Love County division contributed a total of $13,531, surpassing its target of $12,500.
“Generous individuals and companies met these goals. I am grateful to everyone who contributed. They will see their dollars at work in our local community,” Flanagan said.
The overall 5-county drive received $857,075.
The United Way assists 29 non-profit agencies in southern Oklahoma, ranging from Boy Scouts, Red Cross, and Legal Aid to drug addiction centers, child abuse services, battered women’s shelters, counseling agencies, homeless assistance, and emergency medical services.
The leading corporate contributor in Love County was Chickasaw Nation, followed by Mercy Health/Love County Hospital, Clinic and EMS, Red River Valley REA, First National Bank, and Marietta Lions Club.
