Each year, the United Way of the Lowcountry embarks on a fundraising campaign to support its work in Beaufort and Jasper Counties — efforts that support 39 local charities and programs. But support at this level requires a lot of money — this year’s goal is $2.6 million — and the success of the campaign is predicated on the work of talented, dedicated and passionate teams.
To steer the campaign, the United Way has looked to co-chairs Kaye and Dr. Joseph W. Black, a dynamic duo of tireless energy, dedication, compassion and knowledge. The couple’s Lowcountry roots were set in 1978, when Kaye opened Curry Printing, the company where she remains president and owner.
