BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

The United Way of the Lowcountry is on track to wrap up its fundraising campaign by the end of the year.

In less than two months, they've reached 65 percent of their $2.3 million dollar goal for 2013.

About half of the money came from corporate donors, the other half from people in the community.

"We have great partner agencies, we have a great early grade reading initiative and we're able to help a number of people who walk through our doors everyday with our help line and I think people are starting to hear about that and just want to be a part of it," said Tina Gentry, President & CEO of the United Way of the Lowcountry.

The United Way of the Lowcountry supports 33 agencies and 44 programs.
