United Way receives thousands of dollars on Giving Tuesday

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG) - In honor of Giving Tuesday, one local organization received thousands of dollars from the local community. Newschannel 7's Kellie Sanchez was live with the details.

United Way was at the Centennial Bank on Stanford Road for four separate check presentations early Tuesday morning. Each check presentation increased in amount, ending with more than $16,000 donated to the United Way to kick off one of the most philanthropic days of the year, Giving Tuesday.

If you're looking to get into the giving spirit, the public can donate through the United Way's Facebook posts or by texting 850United to 41444 throughout the day.
