Friday marks National 2-1-1 Day.
The Wiregrass Marine Corps League kicked off the big day by making a donation to the Wiregrass Area United Way 2-1-1.
The organizations have worked together for the last three years with “Toys for Tots.”
The Corps presented a check for $211.
"It will go a long way, we count every penny we get here and $211 is a lot for us and we certainly do appreciate it,” said Wiregrass United Way 2-1-1 Executive Director David Duke.
Since the opening of the center in July of 2008, Wiregrass residents have made nearly 28,000 calls to 2-1-1.
Duke says, since last year, calls have increased 111%.
