The United Way of Horry County annual fundraising campaign has raised 91 percent of the $1,275,000 needed for 40 community partners and United Way President Olivia Garren says were working real hard to cross the finish line.
The 2013-14 campaign has raised $1,154,869 which is just a little behind the mid-March total a year ago.
Garren, who is retiring after 39 years with the United Way, says we still have some large national accounts that were simply waiting for the numbers.
The Myrtle Beach residential drive has the largest single residential goal, Garren
Glenda Page has done this for several years, Garren
We will certainly do everything in our power to reach the goal, Garren
Every contribution is important, as Garren
Thats why its called United Way
