United Way of the Coastal Empire over half way to $8M goal

Community

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – With just under a month left to go in their annual fundraising campaign, one local non-profit is still hard at work.

The United Way of the Coastal Empire is officially over halfway to their goal of $8,150,000. To be exact, they are at 66% of the goal, $5,406,617.

“We are one — that means you are part of the solution,” Campaign Chair Ken Rabitsch said at the group’s Mid-Campaign Rally in October.

Funds raised will help United Way support more than 87 programs across 54 local non-profits in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty counties.

The non-profit groups associated with United Way assist the community in everything from providing healthy meals to families, to providing financial independence to the homeless, to helping disabled neighbors get back on their feet, and much more.

The United Way Victory Celebration is set for Thursday, Nov. 21 at the Westin, where the final fundraising total will be announced.
