The United Way of the Lowcountry has raised more than $1,153,000 during its 2013 annual campaign, bringing it just above the 50 percent mark toward its $2.3 million fundraising goal.

Part of this year's campaign money will help fund the United Way's Early Grade Reading Program, which tutors students in kindergarten through third grade in six Beaufort County and two Jasper County schools.

More than 330 students participate in the program in the two counties, along with more than 150 volunteer tutors and 30 AmeriCorps members, according to United Way.
