With the new year rapidly approaching, there's not much time left to get charitable donations, at least to get them counted on this year's tax returns.
Tomorrow is the deadline to get donations in for this year. Charities across the area are still accepting donations.
Donations this year have been better than expected. The United Way has exceeded expectations this year, overcoming last year's mark and reaching this year's goal of just under four million dollars.
Watch later editions of 7 News for the financial aspect and to see how generous southwest Louisiana has been this year.
