$25,025,000 is the goal this year for the Tulsa Area United Way. That’s how much money the Tulsa Area United Way hopes to raise this year.

The announcement came Tuesday and fund distribution Chairman John Meinders says the work wouldn't be possible without the help of volunteers. "These special United Way volunteers recognize that the real power to build strong, healthy communities starts with training and personal responsibility for the health of our community through volunteer efforts."

The money raised this year will help more than 600,000 people in the Tulsa area. This year's campaign kicks off September 11th at Drillers Stadium.
