With just 3 weeks remaining before the year-end cut-off, the United Way of the Black Hills is currently short just under four hundred fifty thousand dollars of its$2,288,000 goal.
The organization provides funding to 52 local non-profit agencies.
Executive Director Renee Parker says that with the recent storm the needs of many of those agencies has risen, "This year we had the blizzard, and that really compounded the need that a lot of folks have in our local area and many of our agencies have been on the front lines since the beginning of all of that helping folks who have really been impacted by that storm."
Parker also emphasizes that the funds raised are critical to the many organization that rely on the support of the United Way.
