Deadline approaching for United Way of the Lowcountry campaign

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

With just 10 days left, the United Way of the Lowcountry is hoping you will help them reach their goal.

The non-profit organization launched a $2.3 million fundraising campaign back in September.

They're now less than $100,000 away from reaching their goal for the first time since 2007.

Organizers say it's not about the dollars, but about the people that will benefit from it.

"If we are able to raise the money that we have as our goal this year, we'll be able to help 31,500 individuals. And so for every dollar that we're short, that's that many few people that we can help," said Tina Gentry, President & CEO of the United Way of the Lowcountry.

The deadline to donate to the United Way of the Lowcountry is Jan. 31.
