The Child Abuse Prevention Association, one of United Way of the Lowcountry's partner agencies, works to prevent abuse and provide support and shelter to abused children.

"CAPA is a keystone agency in the Lowcountry," added Clarece Walker, CEO of United Way of the Lowcountry, "and we all are fortunate to have its caring and highly qualified staff to serve children in need."

CAPA is among the many recipients of United Way financial support.

On Thursday, the United Way board announced it had collected $871,508, or about 31 percent of this year's campaign goal of $2.8 million.
