The United Way of East Mississippi has reached the halfway mark, but campaign chairman Bubba Hampton says the fundraising now needs to shift into high gear.
The organization set a goal of $700,000. People who are working may have contributions to United Way withheld from their pay checks.
A couple of dollars a week would add up to a gift of more than $100 in a year's time.
United Way serves agencies like the Red Cross and Salvation Army. To be involved with the United Way, call (601) 693-2732.
