The community continues to show its support for the United Way Perth-Huron Annual Campaign.

Officials say that, as of  Thursday, they have raised over $620-thousand which means that the campaign is nearing the 50 %  mark for its goal.

The overall goal for this year’s campaign is $1.446-million with the money raised going to help 48 organizations and services across Perth and Huron Counties.

United Way Perth-Huron Executive Director Ryan Erb says this is a great time to donate.

“It’s the time of year when many people are donating and we just want to remind you that tax receipts for year-end are up at the end of December so if you want to get your donation this is the time to do it for the 2018 year.”

Area Scotiabank branches are also matching any donations up to a total of $15-thousand leading up to next Thursday.
