United Way passes 30 percent mark

United Way of the Lowcountry reported Thursday it has met 30.6 percent of its annual campaign goal, with a total of $856,020 contributed so far.

The Success By 6 program is one of the beneficiaries of the annual campaign. The program works with the Beaufort County Early Childhood Coalition to ensure children from birth to age 6 receive what they need to succeed in school and in life, according to a United Way news release.

Its services include the Community Preschool Bus, which takes educational materials and educators to areas in need. The bus helps with early education services and makes referrals to agencies that can assist families, the release said.
