Since 1957, an amazing $18.1 million has been raised from compassionate citizens through the annual United Way of Coastal Carolina (UWCC) campaign. Each year’s campaign totals are a testament to a spirit of giving that is prevalent throughout our community. Contributions to the 2015-16 Campaign will be accepted through April.”
