WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — There are only six days left in the Purdue United Way's fundraising campaign and they are asking for your help.

As of now, the Purdue United way is $55,000 short of their $785,000 goal for the campaign.
Those who want to donate can do so either online through the United Way's ePledge or they can send a check to the United Way Greater Lafayette office.

Officials are looking to help as many families as possible this holiday season.

"You never know who's in need. It could be a co-worker sitting right next to you and these dollars are so important not only to kids but adults in need," said Megan Dale, Director of Purdue University United Way. "There are so many wonderful agencies and areas that our dollars go to and you never know who you're going to help and every little bit counts."

The last event for the campaign is a Christmas ornament sale.

It is happening this Monday at the Mechanical Engineering building on campus.
