Earlier this month, the United Way of Big Spring and Howard County had the 1st annual The Big Push on the corner of Gregg and 3rd to help raise money for the organization before the end of the year. Christian Fair, Executive Director for the local organization, told KBest News that they were able to raise $1,535 during the event. Currently, the local United Way has been able to raise over $100,000 for the 2019 Campaign. Fair also noted that there are several companies that still have yet to respond with amounts of employee pledges.
