Wal-Mart and Samís Club are also the first company to officially kick-off their 2011-2012 Campaign.

United Way of South Texas provides vital funding to over 30 non-profit agencies in Hidalgo & Starr Counties, including the Girl Scouts, Greater South Texas Council, Community Council of the RGV, The Salvation Army and McAllen Literacy.† Funding is critical, as some of the recipients would be challenged to provide their programs were it not for the United Way.† Please call 956-686-6331 or visit us at www.unitedwayofsotx.org if you are interested in getting your company involved in the campaign.
