United Way of Eastern New Mexico is looking to wrap up its annual campaign by Friday.

Executive Director Erinn Burch said pledges total about 91 percent of the campaign’s goal of $482, 005.

Burch said Curry County pledges total $388,141, about 94 percent of the $412,005 goal. Roosevelt County pledges total $48,579, about 69 percent of the $70,000 goal.

Burch said she remains hopeful Curry County can reach its goal by Friday. She said she’s hopeful Roosevelt County can boost contributions to $55,000 by week’s end.
“It’s not too late,” she said.

Contributions can still be made by calling the local United Way office at 769-2103.
