Valdosta - If you're in the market for a new car this month, part of your purchase could go to a good cause.

The New Car Dealers of Valdosta are helping the United Way of Lowndes County meet their 2005 campaign goal. For every new vehicle bought at one of the ten dealerships during September, they'll donate $25.00 to the United Way.

"This is our 50th anniversary so we're doing several special things to celebrate that, and we hope that this will just add to it because this is a sector of the population that we normally have not reached in donations," said United Way Director Nicole Holder.

This year's United Way campaign goal is 1.2 million dollars. The campaign runs through the end of November.
