City of Killeen holds annual employee United Way campaign and Texas Frito Pie sale

100% of proceeds will benefit United Way of Greater Fort Hood and its 19 member agencies

KILLEEN, Texas (Dec. 7, 2022) – The City of Killeen will close out its annual United Way Employee fund raising campaign with a big‘o Texas Frito Pie and Dessert sale on Friday, Dec. 9, from 11a.m. - 2p.m. at the Killeen City Hall foyer and south parking lot (101 N College Street at the west end of Avenue D).

 The theme this year is, “Future Focus.” The Killeen Community Development Department and Library Divisions team will be serving up Texas Frito Pie and some of the utmost, over-the-top decadent Texas desserts that only the Library “Bakers” can round-up for an event such as this. They will be portable and Texas size.

 A Texas Frito Pie consists of corn chips, the one and only Texas Chili Company™, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped onions and sliced jalapenos. This can be served with a beverage for only $5 and for an additional $2, customers receive a homemade Texas-sized sweets.

100% of the proceeds will benefit the United Way of the Greater Fort Hood Area and its 19 member agencies.

 Patrons are encouraged to place pre-orders by Dec. 8. Community Development staff will be taking pre-orders via email at cdbg.homeapps@killeentexas.gov, or via phone at (254) 501-7845. Cash, debit/credit cards, or checks payable to United Way of the Greater Fort Hood Area will also be accepted.

 This is the Community Development Department’s and Library Division’s 8th annual fundraiser to raise funds and awareness for the United Way of the Greater Fort Hood Area and its local member agencies who provide public services to the community.

 The local United Way and its 19 local human service agency members provided nearly half of a million in service contacts during the last fiscal year. Although last year’s United Way donations topped $437,595, funding requests from area agencies were more than double that amount.

 City of Killeen employee contributions and fund-raising events provided more than $69,000 to United Way last year. The employees will come together once again, in the 20th year of giving, to give back to the community.
