SD&G – With the hours clicking down, the United Way of SD&G has reached another milestone – 75 per cent of its $710,000 goal.

The latest boost to the campaign came from the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation with a $30,428 donation – part of a 10 per cent boost in the campaign in recent days.

But there’s still a way to go and the United Way noted that 1,745 people would donate $100, which would allow them to cross the finish line.

To give you an idea of how much still needs to be raised, from now (6 p.m. Wednesday), the United Way will have to bring is a little more than $4,000 an hour until Friday at noon in order to reach its goal.

The United Way supports 17 agencies in the region.
