https://www.GoodMorningGwinnett.com Peachtree Christian Health officials announced the feedback to their plea for help to stay open has been strong enough so far that they are extending the cutoff date by a few days to ensure they meet their $500,000 goal.

Officials at the Duluth-based day center, which works with people who suffer from dementia, had originally set Thanksgiving Day as their deadline to raise the money needed to stay open. If the money could not be raised by that date, then the center was going to have to close in late December, according to an announcement issued earlier this month.

On Tuesday night, however, Peachtree Christian officials announced 273 donors had pledged $320,000 to the "Save Our Center" campaign in an 11-day span. As a result, the center's leaders felt encouraged enough to extend the fundraising deadline to Nov. 29 — which is Giving Tuesday — in the hope that it will help ensure they met their goal.
