DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - The Wiregrass United Way is still pushing forward to meet their campaign goal for this year. The organization says it has collected slightly more than half of its $2.75 million goal.

There are also several fundraisers coming up -- from receiving a dollar from every Ross Clark Circle Chick-Fil-A delivery, an Auburn-Alabama Golf Tournament, and their restaurant gift card drawing.

The funding they’ve collected is vital to the United Ways mission.

“These fundraisers that we are doing are so important because we support 38 different organizations here in the Wiregrass. These are people in Southeast Alabama in our six county region that are helping people every day of the year,” said Wiregrass United Way CEO Walter Hill. “Whether it’s the Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, Von Blomberg Services, Vivian B Adams, Christian Mission Center.... are really incredible organizations that help people throughout the year and these funds help keep their doors open.”

If you would like to be involved in any of these fundraisers you can keep up with events through the Wiregrass United Way Facebook page.
