Hutchinson County United Way was announced to be number one per capita of giving in Texas for the 2010 year. To come up with this result, they take the number of people in the county divided by the amount that was raised.
Julie Winters, Director of Hutchinson County United Way, said, â€śI knew we were running a successful campaign but, I guess I never even dreamed it would make number one. At first I was amazed. Itâ€™s not the work I do, itâ€™s the peopleâ€™s hearts of the community in which I live and work.â€ť
