United Way of Southwest Georgia Christmas Open House

December 13, 2002

Albany --- United Way of Southwest Georgia is far from meeting their 2002 goal, with only 3 weeks left before the new year. That could mean cutbacks in services by the agencies they support.

 At their annual Christmas Open House Celebration, United Way thanked volunteers and community leaders for their support.

But President Wayne Mehearg said United Way is still 50-thousand dollars short of last year's donations. Mehearg said "If we don't make up that shortfall, we've got to go in and cut agency services. Services that some of the people you see around the table here today really need it very badly."

 United Way of Southwest Georgia helps fund 86 health and human service agencies in 9 counties.
