Feb. 11 may not be a well-known holiday, but for a local organization, it's a pretty big deal.

United Way Worldwide declared today National 211 Day.

The Wiregrass United Way celebrated with the Wiregrass Marine Corps League.

The league donated a check worth $211.14 to the organization, but the donation was about more than just a check.

“They do so much for the community, you really don’t realize it and we are not funded, we are funded by the United Way but we have to do our own fundraising to keep these doors open so this check, its a little check but a lot of little checks make a whole bunch of money,” explained Mike Walton of the Wiregrass Marine Corps League.

If you would like to donate to the Wiregrass United Way visit their website at www.wuw.org/211.
